Santa and his Reindeer week

This has been another fun week.  I just LOVE Christmas time and all the things that go with it.  This week we did our Santa and reindeer activities and centers.  I'm posting pictures of our fun times and of course, learning!!  

feed the reindeer game (game from Mrs. Estes)

For teacher friends reading this, I found these cute reindeer buckets in the $1.00 section at Target

ordering Santa's reindeer as we draw a number our of a stocking

Reading number words to find the number on Santa's beard

Rhyming reindeer

We drew objects out of Santa's hat then had to find it's matching rhyming picture
and dot it with a bingo dotter.

We had to match picture stamps to letters on Santa's beard for the beginning sound.

We got to wear reindeer antlers for write the room this week.

At this center we practiced recognizing coins by rolling the cube and shopping for Santa's suit.  (idea from Mrs. Estes)

the finished product

At this center, they had to choose a stocking, count what was inside and write the number on the matching stocking.

At this center, we are practicing recognizing the dots on the die without having to count.
We rolled a die, and found the number on the sample Rudolph to see which part we got.
The object was to complete Rudolph.

For this game, we labeled a blow up Santa from the Dollar Tree and then recorded what we did on the paper.
