Where's Rudolph? 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! 


Santa's Official Reindeer Cam is such a neat way for kids to see what an actual reindeer looks like! If you look in the top right corner you can even see a digital Nice List in the top right corner. To get your student's names on the list or to find out when Santa feeds the reindeer click here. 


Here's a great reindeer brainteaser! Can you put the reindeer in order? 

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!

Reindeer Cafe is a great game for practicing addition facts!

There are many online sites where students can listen to Christmas stories.  This is one gives visitors the option to read the story themselves or have it read to you. The Reindeer Barn is a part of the NorthPole.com 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.

Christmas song: "Sleigh Ride" by Karmin - video, lyrics and interactive exercise


Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap (yeah)
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "yoo-hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you, you-hoo-hoo

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
We're snuggled up together like birds of a feather would be
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
Let's take the road before us and sing a chorus or two
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you, you-hoo-hoo

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
Let's go, let's look at the show
We're riding in a wonderland of snow
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
It's grand, just holding your hand
We're riding along to the song of a wintry fairyland

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "yoo-hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you, you-hoo-hoo

(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)

Roo-roo-rooftop we pause, just like the Clause
Noses so red, Poinsettias in a vase
My Pillsbury dough boy, gingerbread tough
Now kiss me did you miss me mistletoe for some luck
The winter ice so cold, yeah it's clogging my snuff
I need the fireplace hot get the logs in the ov'
Until I get my eggnog a-fog foggin' me up
Catch me candy cane crunchin' - come on!

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
We're snuggled up together like birds of a feather would be
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
Let's take the road before us and sing a chorus or two
(Twi-a-ling-a-ling-a-ding-dong-ding)
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you, you-hoo-hoo

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
