We went back to school on the second - yes a national holiday. I was one of the few teachers with a full class. We dove right into penguins. So much fun. The kids were excited to see the life size penguin posters I had made and put outside our classroom. I am developing my projects for Teachers Paying Teachers but it is slow going. (now available Penguin Theme Activities ) But I did use 2 of the projects in my class this past week. The math sequencing page and the CVC real/nonsense word page kept the students involved and learning for over 20 minutes. Our art project was a fun little pop-up craft. It's free at Teachers Pay Teachers Next week we will tackle the templates that show real species of penguins.
