Polar Express Worksheets and Activities
Start with a Classroom Letter From Santa
As we all know, the holiday season can be chaotic and sometimes difficult to manage in the classroom. Teachers and parents often resort to reminding the children that Santa is always watching 🙂 Why not kick off the Christmas season with a personalized letter and video from Santa to your classroom? With Elfi Santa, you can upload a class picture, type in your class name (Mrs. ______’s class), a class goal, and just like that you can have a personalized video from Santa to your classroom.

Read Aloud the Polar Express Book
Typically, I kick off my Polar Express week at school the last week before Christmas or Winter break. Before I dive into all the fun and cute activities to do with The Polar Express, I start by reading aloud the Polar Express book to the kids.
After doing a read aloud with my class, I begin using the Polar Express worksheets and activities listed below.
Polar Express Comprehension Worksheets
Printable Polar Express Character Cards
Polar Express Writing Center
Making Words are one of my favorite kindergarten and first grade printable resources. As you may have seen in my post, 8 Fun Christmas Activities for Kindergarten, making words are a class favorite!
These Polar Express worksheets keep the students engaged while working on concepts of print, vocabulary, writing, and drawing skills. To support emergent readers, I have put a matching Polar Express clipart next to the word at the top of each printable worksheet. After all, “good readers always look at the pictures.”
Polar Express Math Worksheets
We can’t forget about integrating math skills into our Polar Express activities for kids. This Polar Express math worksheet is great for homework, morning work, math centers, as a whole class shared math lesson, or as an intervention tool to support or challenge your kiddos.
Simple Pattern Worksheets
As early as preschool, kids begin to learn about the patterns around them. Not only do patterns help children learn about sequencing, patterns help kids learn how to make predictions.
The kiddos will use these Polar Express Pattern Worksheets to extend patterns of familiar graphics represented throughout the storybook and movie. They will cut and paste to create AB, ABB, and ABC patterns.
Train Measuring Worksheets
