December 14, 2020

Do you have a favorite reindeer??  Students in Mrs. Dixon's 4th-grade class got to choose their favorite reindeer and tell what talents made their reindeer  Reindeer of the Year! Look at some of these adorable samples:))


This was such a great way to keep students entertained these last few weeks before we are out for Winter Break! I have included the lesson for you to download here and use in your class right away! Just click the book cover below. ** I've also included a nonfiction lesson on reindeer to go with this descriptive segment assignment!
