During DEcember we worked on the mitten story and of course THE POLAR EXPRESS was our Christmas theme.
The Mitten is one of my favorite winter stories and it is excellent for drama with ESL.
We started by telling the story and analyzing its characters, settings and parts.
these are the videos of the school festival: I am so proud of these kiddos oral skills.
THE MITTEN READ THE ROOM: A LITERACY ACTIVITY
This was our first read the room activity and we looved it
As you can imagine from my blog name my favorite children book of all time is THE POLAR EXPRESS. I was excited to work with my kiddos on this book. I always wait till they are five because I think they can understand and enjoy the story better.
As most teachers do when telling this story the best way to do it is in a train... so we have a train conductor giving tickets and kids ready to listen and enjoy,
We told thr story and then Amalio, the janitor, came to our class to tell us that somebody had brought a parcel for us, and it was really cold when we touched it.
Look what we found inside!!!!!!
BEEELLS!! FROM THE REINDEERS LIKE IN THE STORY
kids draw their favorite part of the story and most of them draw the janitor bringing the bells. Aww
