This is an original story for you to use for a variety of Christmas Activities! It's called, "If You Give a Reindeer a Recipe". The story starts with Reindeer getting a recipe request from the man himself, Boss Claus. Reindeer has to travel to all his friends to get the ingredients to make the Rocky Road Ice Cream. He travels to Arctic Fox for the Almonds, Caribou for the Chocolate, etc.. There is even a spot at the end where your students are interacting with the text and must draw their picture in the story. I know your kiddos will just love this story!
There are numerous teaching moments packed into this Easy Reader! Sequencing, Retelling, Alliteration, and so much more. I've helped to bring these moments to life by including the following teaching goodies to the reader:
~5 Comprehension Printables (maps, vocabulary, sequencing)
~BONUS~ 10 printables with additional practice in sequencing, mapping, etc.
~Retelling Stick Puppets, complete with a Puppet Stage!
~Character Headbands to use with retelling and reader's theater activities
~Interactive Notebook Pockets, Books, etc. There are a handful of interactive activities that can or do not have to be put into an interactive notebook.
~Classroom book in which students have to create their own ice cream recipes. Very cute!
So this packet is filled with activities to practice numerous skills that you can tie into Christmas. The story is adorable and the graphics are perfect for it. I'm sure your kiddos will just love it and all the projects, activities, and printables. The majority of the book and activity unit is in black and white.
