Olive, the Other Reindeer

Christmastime IS HERE! We are excited to share one of our all-time favorite Christmas books with you this week, Olive, the Other Reindeer by Vivian Walsh!

Let’s start with integrating the 5 senses during reading. This is how we did it, but take it at your own pace. Use what you have and most of all GET CREATIVE!

 Taste: We tasted gum drops that Olive helps catch when they are falling from Santa’s sleigh.

Feel: We felt the prickly branch of a Christmas tree.

See: We saw REAL reindeer in this cool video!

Hear: We listened to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Smell: We smelled the delicious gingerbread cookies we baked for our cooking activity.

Here is the collection of activities we used as we read Olive, the Other Reindeer.
