The Polar Express

It’s Wednesday, December 13, 2017. I thought I would share a new Homeschool Resource for you for Language Arts to use in your Homeschooling Class. The Polar Express was brought to us through ClickSchooling!
 
Recommended Website:
Age Range: 4-10 (Grades K-5, with parental supervision)
One of the best-loved holiday books is The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. The timeless story captures the imagination of children everywhere. We thought it would be fun to explore learning language arts through this magical tale of a boy who takes a night-time train ride to the North Pole.
When you get to the site you can download an extensive discussion guide for The Polar Express. You’ll also find “Additional Curriculum Connections”. Don’t miss “More Games and Fun” for:
  • Activities
  • Games
  • Recipes

And links to Discussion Guides for all of Chris Van Allsburg’s books.

Also check out Countdown Calendar on the top menu where you’ll find an activity to do on each day of the calendar.

Return to this site often!

To help with your Studies on the Polar Express I thought you might like to have the book and also the Movie and some Hot Chocolate and Popcorn as well as a warm comfy blanket to snuggle under with the kids. As this is the perfect way to spend a evening after a day of Homeschooling.

A young boy, lying awake one Christmas Eve, is welcomed aboard a magical trip to the North Pole . . .

Through dark forests, over tall mountains, and across a desert of ice, the Polar Express makes its way to the city atop the world, where the boy will make his Christmas wish.

For millions of readers worldwide, this mysterious journey to the North Pole has become a beloved classic. In this 30th anniversary edition, the inimitable artistry of Chris Van Allsburg is revealed in a never-before-seen fashion, with a new jacket design and expanded interior layout. Includes an author’s note.
