Polar Express Unit


I've received numerous requests asking me to create a unit for this awesome book.   I'm working on it and will have it ready by Thanksgiving.  If you have a particular skill that you'd like to see represented in this packet you can send me an email at kindergartenteacher@cox.net

Happy Friday Y'all!

  1. Can't wait to see it. We had to stop all Winter holiday units five years ago. Last year we got a new principal and now we can do it again:) I have my old ideas but am always looking for new ones.

  2. I can't wait to see your new unit. My little suggestions would be bigger numbers12-20, CVC words, simple sentence writing.
    Thanks,

  4. Addition and Subtraction to 10. Sentence/Story Writing. Writing Prompts? That's all I've got! You are amazing, I aspire to be like you!!! This is my 5th year teaching K and I am nowhere near organized and having it all together but I will get there someday!

  7. I agree with the numerals 0-20, sight words, CVC words, writing prompts, and simple sentences. How about picture/word sort by beginning, medial, or ending sound? Love your stuff!

  12. Love all the ideas above. I guess thinking about the book, I would love to see a little of the fun incorporated. Maybe have hot chocolate with a writing activity or thinking of the movie, wrapping presents (it could be a letter the students have written) and share it with another class in the building.

  13. Could you include some comprehension skills, story structure format, word maps, some kind of reading diagrams that would relate to the story content.

  14. There is a pretty cool video on the website: www.storylineonline.net of this book. It is Lou Diamond Phillips reading it and some of the pages are animated. (There are other great books on the site as well -totally free!)

  17. I would love to see a cute craft that is easy for my class to do without a lot of help. :) Also, I'd like to practice rhyming words and simple sentence structure. And I bet you could make a cute Polar Express ticket! Thanks!

  18. I can't wait. We always do a polar express day. I love the hot chocolate and the golden tickets. We do the whole thing and create a fake train in our classroom.

  21. Looking for some higher level activities for first graders. Math numbers to 50. Beginning place value. Addition facts to 12. Also, any activities that compare the movie with the book :) Love your units!

  22. So excited that you are doing a unit on this, I just planned our Polar Express day and think I'll make it into a weekly theme with your packet! Skills my kiddos are working on are coins, CVC words, beginning place value (tens and ones), and very simple addition and subtraction problems. We are also doing temperature in science, that would be fun to tie in to the hot chocolate and the cold north pole!
