During the Christmas season, keeping kids focused can be a difficult undertaking. It's filled with the excitement of getting presents, vacations, and family get togethers, caroling, shopping and, of course, Santa Claus. Harnessing all that excitement and energy can also be difficult for teachers. However, the season also presents magnificent learning opportunities that can be enjoyable for both student and teacher.
The North Pole Times offers a number of resources and fun-filled activities to integrate into your classroom. From simple coloring pages to mystery solving exercises. We offer worksheets, word search and crossword puzzles as well as a number of creative Christmas crafts for kids. But it doesn't end there.
Our storylines offer children the opportunity to learn the traditions of different cultures and how other people celebrate the holidays in Fly-About Franny Fridays, or the importance of helping others in Terrific Task Tuesdays.
They can see where the elves get their education in Saturday School of Wonders or follow the case-solving clues on Super Secret Sundays. For the sports fans, the Reindeer Games embodies the importance of physical activity as Santa's sleigh team prepares for the Big Night. Our main storyline follows the day-to-day adventures of Waldo Elf who is sort of a cross between Rudolph and Charlie Brown. He has a tendency to inadvertently cause disruption at the North Pole but somehow seems to come out the hero in the end.
The North Pole Times is a unique website filled with tradition, imagination, and creativity. New storylines begin Thanksgiving Day (US) and run through Christmas Day. Keep your students engaged this holiday season while embracing the Spirit of Christmas. Expose them to a variety of cultures and spark that imagination and creativity.
As we celebrate our 25th season serving millions of households around the globe, we remain committed to maintaining a safe, fun and educational Christmas experience that is free of advertisements and fees.
“Wait! The star!” yelled Waldo when he saw his perfect red tree was missing the star on the top.
The only thing in Waldo’s way to the perfect Christmas party was a bunch of bullies now hiding on the green pine tree.
As long as I can remember, we’ve never had a red Christmas tree here on the North Pole...
Everything was ready for the Christmas party, but there was a problem...
Rudolph was flying through the blizzard, looking for the safest way for his friends. Despite the strong wind...
Dear readers, the story that follows is hard to believe but true.
When Mikee and Waldo opened their eyes, they couldn’t believe it! The tree was still red, red like strawberry and mustard pudding. However...
At the start, luck was on Waldo’s side. Well, not so fast... things couldn't go smoothly for Waldo.
Everyone cheered and saluted Waldo... well, everyone but Bugzy and his buddies.
Finally, it was time for Santa to announce who would have the honor to organize the Great North Pole Christmas Party!
While they were passing near Yeti’s cave, one thing caught Waldo’s eye...
Like the cherry on top of the cake, baby Yeti roared so loudly that it could be heard far, far away.
When Waldo came to the crevasse, Mikee opened her eyes. The two of them saw something they couldn’t even dream of.
However, due to the slippery ground and the size of the snowball, Waldo’s plan didn’t go smoothly.
Poor Waldo was moving his frozen fingers left and right, trying to make a rope. He had never been skillful with crafts, but it was his only hope!
Waldo was standing at the top, looking at the red ribbon, the color of strawberry and mustard pudding, in Mikee’s hair. He had to think of something, and he had to do it fast!
It was the most beautiful voice he had ever heard, the voice he had heard before, the voice of the one who had stolen his heart!
Still hanging on a piece of ice, Mikee didn’t know what to do. She was afraid of Yeti, but...
For the first time since she set off into the wilderness searching for Waldo, Mikee felt lost and scared.
Determined to find Waldo, Mikee was moving her tiny, frozen feet through the deep snow. Nothing could stop her from moving ahead! Well, almost nothing.
Waldo was ready to go back to Santa’s village and make the baby feel the spirit of Christmas for the first time, but now he had to help Yeti find the baby first.
Yeti looked at the empty crib and burst into tears. Baby Yeti was missing! “Don’t worry,” said Waldo. “We’ll find your baby!”
Our dear Waldo was shaking from fear. As if bullying, wandering in the wilderness, and flying into Yeti’s ear hadn’t been enough; now he had to face a new threat.
Meanwhile, Waldo, who had been wandering for days for bullying at the Thanksgiving dinner, slipped on the icy path and flew towards something big, white, and furry. Poor Waldo flew directly into...
As you are about to see, dear readers, nothing is impossible for one and only reindeer with a red nose!
Mikee was looking desperately at the tinny footsteps in the snow. As you remember, those were the footsteps of poor Waldo, who couldn’t stand the bullying anymore.
Poor Waldo didn’t trip and fall, as many would expect. It was something else, something that crossed the line and made Waldo run into the wilderness.
As you already know, our dear Waldo has gone missing. To understand better what made him leave, you need to know what happened at the Thanksgiving feast.
I’m sad to inform you that our dear Waldo has gone missing. You need to know the whole truth – Waldo didn’t disappear, but...
During the Christmas season, keeping kids focused can be a difficult undertaking. Harnessing all that excitement and energy can also be difficult for teachers.
There’s been quite a stir recently here at the North Pole. Our little friend ChrisMouse, who loves running behind the walls at Santa’s Village, has become a little bolder.
