Reindeer Fun, Santa's Reindeer School

I can't believe it, we have only two and a half weeks until Christmas break.  Wow!!!  Really, I have to say it, "Where has the year gone?"

Today we started getting ready for Santa, and we talked about how Santa has to get ready too.  Yeah!  Like ...... training his reindeer! All the reindeer must go to reindeer school before they can help fly the sleigh.
First, Santa has to decide which reindeer get to go to school this year, so we used our greater than, less than and equal worksheet to help him out.  (The reindeer with the bigger number got to go to school this year.)  They loved it! There was even a tie (equal).  :0)
I have several other activities planned to help Santa.   This cute little unit, Reindeer Fun - Santa's Reindeer School, is filled with activities to help Santa and his reindeer get ready.  We are going to be ordering numbers by 5s and 10s (lining up the reindeer for inspection) and making true statements with our reindeer flashcards using the Elf's greater than, less than, and equal signs.  Once the final reindeer have been selected, we will make them and get them ready to fly Santa's sleigh.  (My door is decorated like a big Santa with his bag of toys.)  More pictures to come - Yeah!!!

This math unit is available on TpT.  It includes ordering numbers by 5s and 10s worksheets, 4 different greater than, less than, equal worksheets, and flashcards for counting 0-20, by 5s, and by 10s.

Don't forget to check back to see more pictures and for updates on how our reindeer are doing.
