TIME:  9:34 AM
PLACE:  1st grade classroom
SUBJECT:  StellaDella

SD’s 1st grade class and their 4th grade buddies had a special “Polar Express” activity this morning.  I was one of the parents who volunteered to help out.  They were able to wear their pajamas to school for this fun day.  Tickets were hidden in their backpacks and after they found them, they needed to count coins to purchase the price indiciated on the ticket.  Then they “boarded” the train, listened to the story of the Polar Express, drank hot cocoa and ate chocolate from silver platters, met Santa - who gave them a bell from his reindeer harness - and then went to three areas of Santa’s workshop for activities.  There, they made a necklace with their bell, wrapped presents, cut out cookies and painted a scene from what they imagined they saw while looking out of the train window.  After that, they “boarded” the train again, sang songs and finally returned to the classroom in time for lunch.  They had to keep hold of their ticket to do all the activities – SD decided that the safest place to keep her ticket was in her hair.  Only my child.

Sounds like a really fun Christmas classroom activity! A stylish way to keep your hands free, SD, and know where your ticket is!
