    Hi, we do lots of things for our Polar Express unit! We visit a transportation museum and ride a train. Then, we compare transportation on land, air and water (make a tree map with pictures).
    We make "cube train patterns" in math, words that rhyme with train in phonics. On the day that we watch the movie we put on our pj's and arrange the desks like seats in a train. I hole punch their tickets when they come in the room. We do train activities all morning, a parent comes to read the book to the kids - while they are doing that, we sneak into the room and put a bell and some glitter on their desks!
    Then in the afternoon we watch the movie and have hot chocolate with candy cane stirs. The kids LOVE it! If I can dig up some files of some of these activities, I will post them.
