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.
