The day after Christmas...

I was reading a wonderful blog, which I can't remember at the moment. The teacher had done a great activity where her students had written what Rudolph would do with Santa's sleigh the day after Christmas. I LOVED this idea and adapted it just a little.

My students had sang Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer song in their Holiday sing, so they were very familiar with the character. Then we read The Wild Reindeer by Jan Brett. After we discussed the book I gave them this writing activity. The day after Christmas Rudolph and the other reindeer will... and they were to finish the story, then illustrate.

We colored and cut out a reindeer head, that I am very sorry I did not get to upload for you, and glued it all on to a sheet of red paper. Here is what they looked like.

The stories ranged from Rudolph taking a LOOOOONG nap, to all the reindeer going to the beach to have a swim. They were a great laugh.

I do have the writing sheet uploaded for you to download here.
