"Reindeer really know how to fly" in both of these ACTIVE GROUP GAMES!
Play "FIVE LITTLE REINDEER ON THE ROOF OF MY HOUSE"
and "FIVE FLYING REINDEER"!
Game One: “Five Little Reindeer on the Roof of My House!”
What You Will Need:
~5 small stuffed reindeer, or use my included 5 Reindeer!
~1 small stuffed Santa (visit your local “dollar store”)
~A piece of cotton batting / “fake snow” / or white cloth
~A house with a tagboard ‘roof’ (like one you can easily build from your classroom block collection!)
Game Two: “Five Flying Reindeer!”
What You Will Need:
5 small stuffed reindeer (same ones-- or use another set of my included 5 Reindeer!)
1 small stuffed Santa (same one!)
1 parachute (or a large bed sheet)
My FIVE REINDEER (template included here)
are ready to cut out for game play. Just attach them to squares of construction paper and craft sticks for Game #1. For Game #2, simple attach an additional set of the 5 Reindeer onto small bean bags, using clear plastic mailing tape,
Great rhymes and really fun rhythm patterns! Game play with a STEADY BEAT!
In GAME ONE
, Santa is looking for his Reindeer, who are in the process of flying off a very simple 'house' you've built with your classroom blocks! Simple SONG NOTES
are included to a fun tune!
In GAME TWO
, the Reindeer are flying-- off a parachute or bed sheet! Learn a funny RHYME
to say as your class alternates directions as they move with the parachute. Active fun!
Includes directions for a free phone app for 'picking out' the song tune for GAME ONE, using a labeled keyboard. No musical skills required! Alternately, you can simply chant this song as a RHYME.
Detailed directions for game play are also included in the lesson plan. These two games are simple, fun, and quickly get your kids 'involved' in the action!
