Dashing through the halls
In a hurry all the time
oh how nice it to rest
on my big-ol' fat behind!

The bell on my desk I ring
Making the children quiet
Oh what fun these 2 weeks have been
Not thinking has been a riot!

2 week break... 2 week break
2 week break for us!
Oh what fun it is to stay
in our jammies all day- hay!

CrAzY Fun with Polar Express

Before I start this post I would just like to send our condolences out to all the families affected by the tragedy in CT. As a mom, I can't image what those parents went through yesterday and will continue going through for many years to come. As a teacher, I can't even put into words what I am feeling for that faculty.  Hold your little ones a little tighter from now on. Each and every day is precious! We are blessed to do what we do!
This may come too late for some of you that are already on Christmas break but, unfortunately, we still have a week left. We hope you will still check it out and maybe pick it up for next year!

We love Polar Express! In the past we haven't dedicated too much time to it because the last few days before the holidays are so CrAzY. This year we planned early so we would leave plenty of time for all the fun. Creating this packet has made us CrAzY! We didn't create it with my normal centers in mind. Our plan was to rotate around to our different classrooms and have different fun in each one. So we needed activities that students could complete independently.

This packet comes with 71 pages of polar express fun!
Student reader
Reader for pocket chart with color pictures
5 writing pages
5 roll and cover pages
52 pages of color printables

Here is our plan:
Literacy room: syllables, write the room, sight word practice, weekly reader
Math room: patterns, WAR with number cards, sequencing/counting, memory, roll and color
Writing room: 5 different writing prompts available
Games Room: we will play games on the Promethean board

Included in this packet are all the pieces you need to play these games. These will fit perfectly in your current workstations/centers if you don't have the ability to rotate to different rooms.

Our favorite part is a customizable name tag for Polar Express day. You will be able to change the student name, school name, and year.

We hope you love it as much as we do! If we aren't able to post again before the holiday break, we hope you enjoy your break with family and friends! We are thankful to be a part of this wonderful blogging community of amazing teachers!

Regular price will be $5 but we will have it on sale for $3 for a couple of days!
