All Aboard on The Polar Express

This week our mini lesson for Reader's Workshop was good readers can retell the beginning, middle, and end of a story.  I used The Polar Express to complete this lesson.  After reading, the kids worked with me to write the beginning, middle, and end.  These are the train books they made.

When the kids came back from lunch today they began finding bells in their desk and their pencil boxes. I asked them if they could hear it ring and of course they said, "YES!"  They said that mean't they ALL believed in Santa!

 Patrick was the MOST EXCITED of all.  He continually asked how the bells got in our classroom, if I could hear them ringing, and if he REALLY could take it home.  How ADORABLE!
