The Polar Express!!

Last week, we had a great time reading, “The Polar Express” written by Chris Van Allsburg. After talking about what it would mean to believe in the holiday spirit, we decided as a class that it means to think of others. With that in mind we made pretend presents for our family and friends. Each of us came up with an idea of what we would want to give someone for the holidays. On Wednesday, we enjoyed a wonderful surprise when we got to climb aboard the Polar Express at Ogden School! First Mrs. Graves (formerly known as Miss H) let us watch part of the movie. As we watched the movie, Mrs. Graves handed out our tickets and sang the “Hot Chocolate” Song while passing out hot chocolate for us to drink! We then got our tickets punched and rode the Polar Express to Ms. Owen’s Second grade class. While we were there, the second graders helped us write down what we wanted for the holidays and gave us our very own bell!!
