penguins, Tacky, and a groundhog day freebie

I love the month of February! There are so many fun things to teach. Plus, it's my birthday month! We took a break from all our non-fiction learning to have some fun with Tacky. After we read Tacky the Penguin we described the character Tacky.

Then they got to make their own bubble map. This activity can be found in my slip and slide penguin unit.

We charted the beginning, middle, and end of the story. Then they retold the story on their own. This is also found here.

Here is one of our chit-chat messages. Thanks Deanna Jump for sharing this wonderful idea.

They got to do this part with me. Later we used the bubble map to help us write sentences about penguins.

For math we drew, painted, and measured penguins. This idea came from Kinder by Kim. Love her ideas.

We just loved this activity from Deanna Jump's penguin unit! They practiced sharing the fish and told me if they could share the number of fish equally.

We made this guy last year. If you downloaded the writing paper I just updated it. So you can download a cuter copy below.
