Here are some penguin activities for teachers:

Grab a little reader on penguins here:



                         
 When you put this reader together the fold goes on the outside (see picture in an earlier post) so little hands can turn the pages easily. I use a 11/2" strip of construction paper to hold all the pages together on the left side. Often I send these little books home for a parent to put together and I cut the strips ahead of time. I talked to the children about non fiction and hit many kindergarten standards with this piece of text. This is a great way to practice the sight words in context!

I finally got my first worksheet up on this blog, thanks to Deanna Jump and Dana Baker. They both have beautiful blogs that are an inspiration to me. Thank you blogging friends for taking the time to help me. I really feel grateful to both of you.

Thanks for creating and sharing the Penguin book. My kids and I loved the repetition and the surprise ending. I printed it on sentence strips for the pocket chart and created a reading/writing sheet so that the kids could practice sounding out words and printing. Thanks again for sharing your ideas and hard work.

I know I'm late for this post, but I just found you via Pinterest. I would LOVE a copy of your penguin reader if possible (it won't open as a document). It is so hard to find a book about penguins for my newest readers. laura.scheunemann@wrps.net
