Polar Express Day was a blast! If you are planning yours soon I am going to take you through our day and show you what we used. Then I would love to hear what you do so I can add to it next year! Please share!
The Polar Express Experience!
First of all what could be more fun then wearing your pajamas to school?!?
|They cut out their tickets and got in line to board the “train”. The train was just their chairs in little sets of 2 on the rug.|
|I was the official hole puncher and they LOVED my flair.|
|We are all on board now with our tickets. Time for the Story!|
Barnes and Nobles
This month, Barnes and Nobles is featuring The Polar Express as their free read aloud. The author Chris Van Allsburg is narrating. Here’s the Link or you can read it yourself with all YOUR dramatic flair.
|They Believe!!! After the story ended I pulled out a bell for everyone. They were so excited that they could hear it|
|and boy did we hear it…all day!!! (ok after 20 minutes I made them take them off!)|
We did a couple little activities but barely had time for much with our working morning. This is what we did: We used Pitner’s Sequencing Freebie and then I found a maze and a word search on the Polar Express Website that were also free.
|They were so sweet and I got lots of extra hugs today for my efforts.|
THE BEST CARAMEL POPCORN
Then I came home and made THE BEST CARAMEL POPCORN IN THE UNIVERSE! Jessica from my world made by hand blogged about it and I had all the ingredients in my pantry…so it was only a matter of time!!!! My husband is going to flip out when he gets home from the gym! It’s his favorite treat!
