“Polar Express Book Companion” is a fun way to get ready for the holidays while using amazing children's literature! In addition to a variety of mixed articulation words from the book, there are three language sections in this product, divided by skills level. Each section includes multiple activities and worksheets including: flash cards, and games.

The book is not included in this download.

I highly recommend putting each section into a page protector sleeve and then clipping all of the sleeves together. This method of organization makes it very easy to find and organize your materials.

“Polar Express Book Companion” allows the educator to use the same book with almost every student on their caseload. Activities and worksheets are divided into the following levels:

Level 1: language skills in the K-1st grade common core state standards

Level 2: language skills in the 2nd-3rd grade common core state standards

Level 3: language skills in the 4th-5th% grade common core state standards

All activities and worksheets are aligned with Common Core State Standards:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.1 Participate in conversations

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.3 Ask and answer questions, summarize

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.6 Express thoughts clearly and in complete sentences

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1 Use standard English grammar

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.4 Define and clarify new vocabulary

This is the perfect book companion for a beloved book during a festive time of year!
