Rudolph is Missing!




This week in centers we had to finish a story about Rudolph. We hope you enjoy reading our different endings! Here is how the story begins:
It was Christmas Eve and Santa had just finished loading up his sleigh. He called all of his reindeer by name to get them ready to leave. "Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen, and Rudolph! Let's go!" Santa yelled. All the reindeer came running, except for Rudolph. Rudolph was missing!
