Holiday Book Fun!

First graders at Dallas Center Elementary recently read the favorite Olive, the Other Reindeer by Vivian Walsh and J. otto Siebold.

We read the book together, making predictions about Olive's time with Santa and the reindeer, as well as comparing Olive's reindeer adventure to Rudolph's.

Then, students created their own reindeer "self portraits" as a follow-up activity. (Thanks to RM MC from ARTventurous--here's her original post.) Check out some of the students' work!


Many of the students' reindeer, then, were part of a display in our library hallway.
