Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

Today begins our last week of school before Christmas break and it also begins our Polar Express week!  We started off by reading The Polar Express.   We used pictures and illustrations to create a flow map to re-tell the story.  Then on their own students put the story back in the correct sequence with a cut and paste activity.

   

During center time students put together A-Z alphabetical order train puzzles.  For math we reviewed 2D shapes and made a train glyph based on answers about trains and The Polar Express.  The train activity comes from Simply Kinder.

     


For the second day of Polar Express week, students made glyphs based on questions about trains and Polar Express.

Then we read the story Christmas Kitten by Vivian French.  We talked about how the girl in the story really wanted a kitten for Christmas, and how the boy in The Polar Express got the bell he really wanted as the first gift of Christmas.  We then wrote about what we would pick for the first gift of Christmas.
