Getting Ready for the Polar Express!

Hello darlings!  I know it is not yet Thanksgiving, but if you are anything like my third grade team and I, you are thinking ahead to December.  We always do a mini unit on the Polar Express during reading/writing time.  I have seen TONS of activities for this book out there, and mine is just a version that includes the CCS for third grade.

It has over forty pages of resources, including lesson plans.
The first three people to comment and leave their email will get this for free!

I also wanted to give you a FREEBIE!  I always do a book exchange in my classroom for the holidays.  Here is the letter I send home to the parents.  You can edit it to fit your needs!

I also wanted to share some exciting news with you!  3 Teacher Chick's own SHELLEY SNOW is TEACHER of the YEAR!!!!  (initiate cheering sequence now)  I am so incredibly proud of her and I am so happy she is my blogging buddy!  I am a lucky girl!  Congrats Shell Bell!!!  I wish I could send you on a beach vacation!!!

  11. I have always taught this in Kindergarten and 1st but I'm new to 3rd grade and was praying I'd find some lessons for it. I would hate to give this book up just because I taught 3rd graders!!! :) I'm partnering with a kindergarten class this year to build relations, as well. I hope to use this.

  12. This is awesome, I just took over a 3rd class last week. I have 3 pages of Polar Express activity sheet that was left for me. I would to see what you have in your packet.

    thank you.
