Right before Christmas break, Ms. Ashley’s second grade class celebrated Polar Express Day. Their whole day revolved around the book Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. In the morning they read and discussed the events in the book. In the afternoon the second graders boarded the “Polar Express” getting their tickets punched and receiving their special necklace with a bell and their name. The students watched the movie and were paying attention to how the movie and book were similar and how they were different. Looks to me like they had a wonderful day!!
