Polar Express Party at May Roberts

Second graders at May Roberts Elementary celebrated the last day of school in 2004 with a 'Polar Express' party. Students brought their pajamas and a few even brought their blankets and pillows to read in comfort!

Mickey Newton's, Peggy Nielsen's, and Lisa Mulvany's students participated in a three-way rotation, then a reading time. Their rotations engaged them in different activities related to the book, "Polar Express." One station was the story itself on a CD. This story time was followed by a second station featuring hot chocolate and baked cookies. The third station found students reviewing the story by completing vocabulary activities.

The wrap-up event was a time to read and relax. Students read while enjoying holiday music and hoping their ticket would be drawn as the winning ticket for one of many door prizes including a Polar Express poster.
