    I love the Polar Express

    You could make story problems about buying tickets for the train. Make the tickets fancy and magical. You could also have them buy magical "snowy" snacks. You could even bring in Hostess snowballs, candy canes, etc. for them to buy with the money! You could even make things out of construction paper(candy canes, warm hat, gloves, picture with Santa, stocking) that they could buy as souvenirs when leaving the north pole. You could also make some elves...Santa holds the dollar, the next smaller elf holds the quarter, the next smaller elf holds the dime, the next smallest the nickel, and a baby elf holds the penny.. Let the children give the elves a name and write the names on the elves. Now ask children who would have to help you make a certain amount of money, like 82 cents. Let them think of all the different ways to make it, but they have to use the elf names....Like 3 Hermies, 1 Elfie, and two Midgets.
