We have a special reading of The Polar Express in the library. We also watch it online while we sit with our chairs in a train shape.
The site is http://www.storylineonline.net/
We drink chocolate milk with whipped cream and sprinkles and we eat cookies.
We make winter trains and brainstorm things that the Polar Express train could see on the way to the North Pole.
I make polar express trains for each child to take home as a reminder of the day.
I chose one child to be the train conductor. He or she welcomes people aboard, takes tickets, and blows the train whistle when we are ready to leave the station.
