Christmas movie

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am new to teaching 5th grade.
I have just learned that on the last day of school before winter break each classroom teacher hosts a movie and popcorn treat for the classroom. (All other sections are doing this and forgot to let me know)

What movie do you suggest that would appeal to the 5th grader?

Has to be rated G or PG. Even with PG, I will have to get permission from each child's parent.

Any suggestions?

At my school we are watching the Polar Express. The kids love to see the movie so this is a good one to use.

Elf. They still giggle no matter how many times they've seen it.

I'm showing the new Disney "Christmas Carol" that just came out on video. In years past I've shown Elf and The Santa Clause. 5th graders love both. I've also shown Home Alone which they also like.

I'll let you know how they like my new choice.

Santa Clause The Movie (not the Tim Allen one) this is an old one with Dudley Moore. I think it is from 1985. I remember watching it when I was in elementary school. I finally found it on DVD this year at Target. It is about 2 hours long and a great movie! I plan on showing it this year while we string popcorn! Happy movie watching!

My team is going to be doing a make up study hall / movie day on Wednesday. The frontrunner so far is "Polar Express." I never thought about showing "Elf," I may have to suggest that one.

I love that movie and most kids have never seen it so it's a good one to show.

I agree, I just need to find a copy. This movie is before my 5th graders time.

Miracle on 34th Street is a good one too. Haven't seen the new version, but love the old!

PRANCER all the way!! I like it because most of the kids haven't seen it! It is a great story and if you can incorporate reading "Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Clause" it is even better!! Fifth graders are all about how they know there is no Santa, but I always tell them the story of how my mom always said that, "Santa is someone who loves you" and that was the only explanation ever given. I also try to stress how much excitement the idea of Santa presents to little ones, and why try to ruin that??? We also make "Magic Reindeer Food" for our kindergartners and make it a service learning project!

This is a great movie that goes well with 5th grade social studies. Few of the kids have seen it and they love it!
