Well, my reindeer week is off to a great start! The kids are loving it... I can't wait to do more.
Before giving any new information this morning we activated our schema by writing on yellow post-its what we already knew about reindeer. Most of my kids wrote that they have 4 legs. After reading a non-fiction reindeer book titled "A Day in the Life: Polar Animals--Reindeer", we wrote our new learning on purple post-its. Then, we labeled our own reindeer.
