I was thinking about doing a unit in the next few weeks with my second graders with the book and movie The Polar Express. Does anyone have any good worksheets, crafts, or ideas to use with this book? Thanks for your advice!

Another teacher and I just had this conversation. We are going to have the kids come dressed in their pj's one day. They will also have a ticket that has to be punched in order to get in to see the movie...We are going to do some creative writing...If you could go on a midnight train ride where would you go? When we watch the movie we are going to have doughnuts and hot chocoalte. For a craft, we will be making trains out of grahm crackers, oreos and licorice. We are also going to make jingle bell necklaces....i hope this will help...

so much fun!!! I'm not teaching this as a unit this year because we are doing little school-wide things for it, which kind of bums me out. I did a ton of stuff last year with my first graders around this and they loved it. Have fun!

to explore.

I have a whole uint planned on this. Most of it I got from the two sites listed. I have bought train whistles for each child. My bell necklaces are made and will be taped under each chair. The chairs are arranged like rows on a train. I am making cookies shaped like trains. Hot chocolate will be served. Pjs will be worn that day for the party. My room will be decorated like the North Pole. Train tracks will be made out of black electrical tape outside my door and down the hall. I will greet them at the door.for them to receive their tickets to enter the room. Don't forget to punch their tickets once they are seated. The story will be read to them. Afterwards a few worksheets about the polar express will be worked upon while I am making the hot chocolate. Then we will watch the movie in the afternoon. ALL ABOARD! I can't wait.
