I only have 7 days left my with little kindy kids before we have our Christmas concert. We have been practising 2 songs (with actions) to perform - Jingle Bells and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. For some of the students this is the first time they have learnt the words to the songs so we went through them line by line. When we got to the part in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer that says "all of the other reindeer wouldn't let him join in any reindeer games" the kindy kids were mad! How rude! That is definitely not being a good friend! And of course, KIndy kids being Kindy kids, brought this up every time we sang the song. Every. Time.
That was the main reason behind the creation of the activity 'Poor old rudolph'
Some of the responses were so hilarious - Dob to Santa, Play with the baby reindeer. To create the little Rudolph face we simply printed the students hands in brown paint and sprinkled it with glitter. The nose is a little red glitter pom-pom. Too cute!
On a side note I am so impressed with how fab some of my students writing has become! It is so encouraging to see the hard work pay off and have everything "click" into place for them.
Have you started following us on our Facebook page and TPT store? We would love it if you could help spread the word about this little project of ours, it would mean the world to us!
