I noticed a small typo on the Reindeer Rebellion Comprehension Test when my students took it today.  If you already purchased the item, please download it again.  I'm sorry!

Reindeer ABC Order

As much as I love Thanksgiving, Christmas is my favorite time of year to teach!  I love all of the creative things that I can implement in the classroom. My Christmas break is kinda strange this year - we go until December 19th.   But the bonus is that I have 3 1/2 weeks to do Christmas activities! There is a lot I want to cram in, so I decided to make a schedule of themed activities.

Week of November 26 - Reindeer
Week of December 3 - Gingerbread
Week of December 10 - Elves/Santa
Week of December 17 - Grinch

In previous years I usually give my students a worksheet to practice putting the reindeers' names in ABC order.  It comes at the perfect time of year since we start ABC order in November. This year I found an old post by First Grade Parade. I searched high and low to see if there was a template on her page, but I couldn't find one. So I decided to create by own template.  You can download a free copy at my TPT store.

I can't wait to go back to school on Monday to make these with my firsties!  I plan on using them as a hallway display.
