loved your Polar Express lesson

I was asked to do a Mimio staff development session for Media Specialists in our district. I used your lesson as a sample activity in the workshop. It was very engaging! Thanks for sharing. : - )

The activity is wonderful and

The activity is wonderful and well designed. I just wonder how much time do you devote to such task especially that it is a combination of reading and listening.

Thank you for such effort and good luck.

Polar Express

I love that this lesson had the before, during and after activities. The backgrounds are perfect and will really get the students engaged. I do a Polar Express Unit each year with my ESL students and this will be perfect. Thanks for sharing!

The Polar Express

I love this!!! I have used the polar express for years, long before the movie came out, and I just keep adding to the unit. We study all about the polar regions and animals. Now, I have this wonderful reading of the story and the comprehension activities. I don't care if Christmas is over. We are doing this tomorrow!
