Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 700

The students loved receiving their own bells during our Polar Express literacy celebration! It gave a real life connection to the book and movie.

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

Purchase bells to distribute to each student/teacher at the end of a full week of a Polar Express Literacy Celebration. 

 

What will be done with my students

After a week of reading the Polar Express, completing Polar Express themed activities across the curriculum and connected to the standards, reading books with similar themes such as kindness, compassion and giving to reflect some of our school-wide guidelines for success students will be given a bell as a symbol of this theme. This celebration has been an annual occurrence and we would like to permanently integrate it for many years to come. 

 

Benefits to my students

This Polar Express Literacy Celebration is a beloved week that both students and staff look forward to each year. Many students at our school do not have much to look forward to at home and this celebration really makes them feel loved, included and celebrated for the wonderful children they are. Even the staff feels a connection to this celebration. The bell is a wonderful symbolic gesture that everyone looks forward to. 

 

Describe the Students

We are a Title 1 School. The students at our school perform at varying levels, although many are low. We have a high ESOL population and one of the highest percentages of free and reduced lunches.
