Polar Express parties are THE HOTTEST THING... right now on IG and Pinterest. I of course wanted to do one in my classroom because we are use The Polar Express as a mentor text for mentor sentences this week.
But I realized.... A) Polar Express is not on Netflix or Amazon Prime (boooo!) B) It was close to a two hour movie and C) I usually like to put a spin on things.
So I figured that Frosty the Snowman is a classic, one hour and a few minutes in length and FREE on Netflix. So my students still get to enjoy some hot chocolate, snuggle with their favorite teddy bear, wear comfy pajamas and watch a fun movie.
I made this flyer up... to add extra hype to the special Frosty Frenzy.
Enjoy the holidays with your kiddos!

Let's be honest.... there's always old Scholastic Book Orders left over. So my students first sorted the mini-passages into the PIE categories. Then they had a blast in cutting, sorting and gluing the clippings from the book orders.

My teacher HACKS consist of buying youth TOMS. For example, (I do not have dainty, petite feet) I wear a size 9 in women TOMS and I wear a youth size 6. The reason, I like buying youth is because they are CHEAPER, have more CUSHION and there are so many PATTERNS you can choose from!!
If my wide, solid caveman feet can fit into a youth TOMS... consider trying them on!!!
