So, I problem solved! I created my own penguin unit that includes everything needed to teach early readers all about penguins. What amazed me the most is that the students, my second graders who struggle with reading, read it with little to no help! I spent a lot of time with vocabulary and some background knowledge. I wish I had the pictures, but I left my camera at school! I will post pics of us using the unit later this week.
The unit includes 4 different poems to use for fluency, an original nonfiction book for your students to read (complete with glossary), vocabulary cards, comprehension quiz, and a fact/opinion game. Sounds like fun! You can grab it for half price in either my TPT or TN stores through Thursday, January 24th.
For you, my readers and followers, I am giving you something that is not in the unit: my penguin sound boxes. I have included 3 different ones: three sounds, three sounds and silent e, and four sounds. If you would like others, let me know, and I will create them for you! The penguins are from Michelle at The 3AM Teacher's Reading Penguins Clipart Collection.
Playful Penguins Unit on TPT and TN!
