Reindeer Family Literature and Activity Guide


Digital Download

Join us on a holiday adventure as we learn all about the life of Reindeer alongside a few of our favorite reindeer-inspired read alouds! We’ll travel to the Arctic tundra and learn about the great reindeer migrations, their families, and adaptations that help them thrive in their polar habitat. Our storybooks will have us playing with “reindeer verbs,” narrating with our new story puppets, learning about nouns, and exploring plot development.
