While we are reading The Polar Express in whole group reading, I put a word work center and comprehension center related to this story in my centers. This file is what I put in my word work center, so my students can get practice with unfamiliar words from the story. In my store, I also have The Polar Express story already typed up. It has the whole story from beginning to end. When teaching this lesson and using this story, this is an awesome way to have students follow along as you are reading the story. They can underline and learn all different types of test taking strategies as well! They can also use the full text in centers!
