Rockin' Reindeers FREEBIE!

Horray!  It's nearly December!
Can you believe how fast November flew by?  I still can't believe that in a few weeks we will be off for Christmas Break (a well-deserved one, too!).
 
I have a volunteer in my classroom a few times a week...wait....let me stress what an AMAZING artist she is!  I know I have mentioned Ms. Josie in other posts but the wall art she put up is truly fabulous.
And she made all the cute pictures FREE-HAND!
Yes, if it were me I would have pulled out the old overhead projector, photocopied some clip art onto transparencies and started tracing, painting and cutting. 
But not Ms. Josie.
She whipped these pictures up in no time!
I just love the reindeer wearing earmuffs - he's my favourite!
 
 
I told her to open up a clip art store so other teachers can purchase her amazing stuff and use it for TpT units.  She's a pro on the computer too!
What do you think?
 
I've made this cute little reindeer craft before.  I found it online years ago and don't know where it came from!  I'd love to give credit!
It looks like a TLC art activity.  I love the way they all come out a little differently.
 

 
I had all the shapes pre-cut and the students simply followed my direction in gluing the pieces in the correct order/spot.  Easy and so much fun!
Plus it makes for a great Christmas display!
 
Here is the rest of the wall that Ms. Josie created for us.
 
 
You can click here for a copy of the reindeer craft - please excuse my hand drawn instructions.  My computer was giving me a hard time so I just scanned it in.
 
Horray.....TGIF ... almost!

  2. Hey terrific website! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work?

    I've virtually no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I simply had to ask. Appreciate it!

  4. the reindeer comes from Heidi's blog Heidi Butkus who has a fabulous blog and good resources. She also has an elf and a Santa Claus that are great decorations that I have made with my students for the last couple of years. They do turn out cute no matter what! Here is a link:

    You will find lots of stuff on her blog if you are not familiar with her work. The reindeer are #2 on the list and you still can download the instructions from it.
    I am a full day kindergarten teacher in Edmonton Canada. It is always nice to meet other Canadian teachers. I do have a blog but it is a quilt blog. You will find a list of kindergarten bloggers on it intermixed with my quilty friends.
    Regards,

  5. Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
