Reindeer: Zoo Project Week 12

'Twas the week before Christmas, 
Holy Redeemer was a zoo, 
What was this week's animal focus?
The reindeer, that's who!

World's Cutest Reindeer

We read about reindeer,
Who couldn't fly Santa's sleigh,
By the end of the story,
They worked as team ... up & away!

The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett

We noticed in the word reindeer,
There are two squealy ee's
So we built some "ee" words, 
Like tree, queen and bee!

For our Math challenge, 
We used a hundreds board,  
And coloured the numbers we found, 
Just look at our reward!

Then we looked at the zoo map,
And the reindeer were found!
Using our mapping skills,
The ice cream shop was also around!

Then we carefully sketched & labelled
In our journals for Zoo School,
We are learning to work like scientists, 
Don't we rule?

Then things got silly, 
When we made our reindeer names,
Such as Bootsie Von Stride, 
What a hilarious game!

Reindeer Name activity from here

As the week came to an end,
And we became experts on reindeer, 
We hugged one another, 
Can't wait to see you all next year!
