Reindeer Games

This is one of the cutest sites out there to use during the Christmas season!

The Rain Deer Orchestra is a site where students touch the nose (or type the number on their shirt) of a reindeer to play different musical notes. There are three song choices to choose from- Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and Deck the Halls- or you can free play and play and make up your own song.
This is a fabulous site to use with students on your Smart Board-with a different student in charge of a different number or one student in charge of the entire orchestra. Students could also do this at individual student computers-which would be a fabulous way to practice number recognition and mouse skills.

Oh no! It's Christmas Eve and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is missing!
Rudolph is Missing! is an online story that asks inference questions as the story goes along. It's up to you to find out where Rudolph has gone!

Rudolph is missing and Christmas will be ruined if he isn't found! Click on the picture to find the hidden reindeer.  Rudolph hides in a different place in every new game! 

Here's a fun online reindeer coloring page! 

There are many online sites where students can listen to Christmas stories. This is one of my favorites because it gives visitors the option to read the story themselves or have it read to you.

The Reindeer Barn is a part of the site.  Raymond is a reindeer that lives in the reindeer barn with all the other reindeer and hopes to be the newest member of Santa’s reindeer team. Students find the places in the barn that take them to Raymond’s stories about his adventures.
