    Hello! I am doing a Polar Express unit the week before our break...here is what I have planned so far (all of which I got from polarexpress.com)
    -I made large tickets on the computer and on the back I printed blank lines. Each child will set a reading goal and they must write the book title and date which it was read on the back of the ticket. Each time they complete a book I will punch thier ticket. This will be thier pass into the movie on friday.
    -We are going to do a lesson on silimile and metaphor.
    -There are several writing prompts such as "Pretend you are going on a magical journey, where would you go? What would you do? How would you get there? How would it change your life?"
    -A craft we are making is to imagine you are looking out a window on the train and create what you see using construction paper we will then cover it with saran wrap and create a window. I will make a large train and put the windows on it and display in the hallway.
    -After we read the book and watch the movie we will be making a Venn Digram comparing the two

    If I come up with more, I will let you know! :)
