|The Polar Express|
One of my favorite units every year is "The Polar Express". The students are so engaged that they just eat up everything that I teach them that week. It doesn't hurt that we wear our pajamas and get to try all the delicious hot cocoa that we can handle. We start the week by reading the text focusing on retelling and central message. After we read the text, we compare the movie to the book. For writing the students work on what their first gift of Christmas would be. It's a lot of fun!!!
