PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Polar Express Math and Literacy Centers created to encourage higher level thinking.

These challenging centers are great for your GATE class!!

These are perfect for "Polar Express Day" in which students rotate to centers or as a part of your regular center program. All student worksheets are provided as well as schedule, learning skills reflection and an overview of how we run our Polar Express day. Created for use in grade 1, 2, 3 gifted program, but appropriate up to grade 5 as there is a lot of opportunity to extend thinking. Topics include world/country geography, building (structures, forces), math (currency, money), visual art, and reading (predictions, questioning, inferences).

This sounds like such a great idea! I am in my classroom trying to download and I cannot! I have purchased other lessons and I have never had any problems. Not sure I would buy another product in a zip file.
