This is an adorable and fun craft and writing activity. The students choose prepositions from a bowl and then take that preposition and write a sentence to tell where Rudolph goes on his flight. On each page of their book they choose a new preposition to use. When they are finished with this writing project they will have a wonderful understanding of prepositions! They look fantastic hanging on the bulletin board as well!
Copy all the patterns onto construction paper.
Copy off the book cover and cut it in half. There are enough for two students on each sheet.
Choose what type of writing paper you would like to use, copy it back to back, and cut it in half.
Staple the books together.
Copy off the prepositions, cut them out and place them in a bowl to be shared by a small group of students. You can place multiple bowls around the classroom.
Have the students choose a preposition without looking and use it in a sentence to explain how Rudolph will fly. Example: Rudolph went down the chimney. Rudolph goes under a bridge. Older students can add more details to their sentences. Example: Rudolph quickly went down the narrow chimney. Have the students choose a different preposition for each page. They can illustrate their books.
Staple Rudolph’s face to the bottom half of a red or green large paper plate to form a pocket. Add the antlers, the eyes,
and the nose to the front of the face.
Place your book in the pocket you made for people to
read. Hang it in the hall!
