Polar Express Day

Today we climbed aboard the Polar Express for a fun-filled day of learning!  Many students chose to wear their jammies for the celebration. They looked great!

Our morning began with a math challenge based on the Polar Express.  Students worked in teams to solve a variety of problems. Great problem solving strategies, and excellent group work skills were displayed. Well done 3W!

In Gym, we headed outside to play a wild game called “Loose Caboose!”

During Language, we gathered together to listen to the story by Chris Van Allsburg. We all agreed it’s a beautiful book, with amazing word choice, and incredible pictures.

In the afternoon we sat down to watch the DVD. As we watched, students looked for similarities and differences between the book and the movie. I was very impressed by all the ideas they came up with!  Check out a few samples of their work below (click on the images to enlarge them.)
