I love the Polar Express story. Even before it was movie, I would read the book to my class. For I few years we even put on the play for the parents.
For the past week we have been practicing some of our skills with a Polar Express theme.
We practiced counting and colouring.
Graphing was favorite. For my students who colour in the boxes, we used bingo dabbers.
I love these, because even if my students can't print well enough, I know if they can match and count.
This can be a little tricky but it's good practice to fill in the missing numbers.
Patterns are part of the Kindergarten Ontario curriculum and the kids love this Polar Express pattern page.
You can never have enough practice counting and matching numbers.
I like to have the children practice putting numbers in order.
This one is a little tricky too. There are several answers that go under each number. I like to have the children practice cutting while they are working. I love them working on more than one skill at a time.
