Home Preschool Unit: Reindeer fun and... cookies!
Today we made these OH-SO cute Reindeer cookies to go along with our Reindeer Unit. They were super simple to make too! Just grab a bag of peanut butter cookie mix and bake as directed. When you pull them out of the oven, push in brown m&m's for eyes, a red m&m for a nose and use broken pretzels for the antlers.
Here's some snippets of our learning fun....
I had planned on reading, The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett, but saw that it was on YouTube, so I had T listen to the read-aloud instead. There is a mini-unit on the book on Homeschool Share; it explains that Norway was the probable scene for the book, so I showed T Norway on the map and he colored a flag.
T made a Reindeer headband using his hands as antlers. It is the most colorful Reindeer you will ever see : )
T also made a Reindeer paper plate Christmas card holder; I think he turned out pretty cute!
I saw that T LOVES to measure today when we did a "How Many Reindeer Tall" activity. I used this cute Reindeer template and made a worksheet. T also counted to 100 by 2's and did really well!
Label the Reindeer Worksheet
color words and T only had trouble with Gray, as we haven't really went over that word. He knows all the other ones, though!
