HERE to read their posts. They'd love it if you left them a comment, too! :)
We read this book together on our Promethean board. It's super cute, easy to read, has rhyming and is a great way to practice fluency and expression!! You can go HERE to view it.
We made these cuties yesterday. I found the idea on Pinterest...I'm so addicted to it!! It's a good thing though! :) (Here's the website they were on: http://marymaking.blogspot.com/2009/12/construction-paper-penguins.html)
Besides those fiction stories, we have been reading some non-fiction books to answer questions we have about penguins and to learn new facts, too.
Here's another Pinterest-inspired idea that I found at Fun-In-First.blogspot.com. The kiddos wrote their answers to the questions on post-it notes and then we read Cool Penguins to find out if our answers were correct.
We will continue our study of penguins tomorrow and will write down some of the information that we have learned. We're hoping to share some of that information with our Skype friends in Canada, Texas and Vermont.
That's all for now. Between the full moon (CRAZY, LIVELY kiddos!!), the warm weather (and some snow forecast for tonight??), and end of the semester/quarter assessments you should see my desk...back to work! ;)
