Polar Express Day

We decided that everyone loves the book The Polar Express! We celebrated our last day of school before break doing several activities to integrate learning from this book. First of all we got to wear our PJ’s to school and pretend we were on the Polar Express. We listened to the story and then sequenced story events and put them into a cute Polar Express train art we made.

We also got to make necklaces with silver bells on them to help them remember to “believe” in the spirit of Christmas. While we were busy making our necklaces we had some chocolate milk and donuts as a treat from Mrs. Schmelzer and got a new book and bookmark from her also. Then we got to go to our all school sing a long and had a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus!  Merry Christmas!!
