This week marks my favorite week, The Polar Express week!  On Monday we read the story and students retold the story by putting pictures in the right order.  They also shared with the class what happened on their part of the story.  Finally they retold the story in correct sequence order by doing a cut and paste activity.

Today students wrote about what they would choose as the first gift of Christmas (A silver bell, pony, and genie bottle).  At the end of the day students created a train glyph, answering questions about trains.

We started our new unit on friends and feelings and to start us off we created a circle map on friends.  Students were given the opportunity to illustrate our ideas as we came up with them.

Then we read the story The Little Red Hen and discussed on how the characters were not good friends.  We used Popsicle stick puppets to retell the story as a whole group and students created their own Popsicle stick puppets.  Then during free choice centers they got to retell the centers with their friends.

The next day we used sequence cards to put the story back in the correct order.  Then students worked on cutting and pasting their sequence cards onto construction paper.
