1-2-3 Come Do Some Penguin Activities With Me
Studying penguins is one of our winter themes that my students really enjoy. With that in mind, I designed “Waddle Lot Of Fun”.
Because my school does Daily 5, word work is a part of our day; so I’m always looking for quick, easy and fun ways to build vocabulary within a specific theme.
Besides word work, this penguin-packet is filled with lots of activities that will help you practice a variety of standards, while learning a bit about penguins.
Simply choose what’s appropriate for your kiddos then “Print & Go!”
The packet includes:
* A super-cute“Where’s the Penguin?” Spatial direction craft & game.
* “1-2-3 Sequence Me” chick & egg ordinal numbers game.
“Oh My! Opposites” penguin picture & word game cards.
* “Label the penguin” worksheets
* “‘Waddle’ Lot Of Fun!” word work booklet
* A list of 30+ words related to penguins along with their definitions
* Picture cards of 15 different kinds of penguins. (Share, sort, alphabetize, pattern, play games or make an Itty Bitty booklet with them.)
* An alphabetical list of penguins with “1-2-3 ABC Me” worksheets
* Penguin Species & Penguin Vocabulary word searches
* Comparison & contrast activity with Venn diagrams
* Graphing whole group activity
* Penguins ARE, CAN, HAVE worksheet
* Alphabetize the words worksheet
* Write a caption for the penguin photo posters
* “Favorite penguin” bookmark writing prompt
* “If a baby penguin could talk, what are some of the things it might say?” writing prompt worksheet.
* “I would/would not like a penguin for a pet because…” color-me writing prompt worksheet.
* “Pp Is For Penguins And …” worksheet.
* 32, mini-photo cards of real penguins doing various actions (4-on-a-page for quick printing).
* I’ve also included many links, so students can see real penguins doing these things, along with several links where students can hear the penguins “braying” too.
* Matching verb word cards (waddling, tobogganing, nesting, calling etc.)
* “How many words can you make using the letters in penguin?” worksheet. (Color & BW, plus an answer key with 27 words.)
* “Words that describe penguins” color-me worksheet
Color word fun:
* 11, pocket chart color word cards. (Includes gray/grey spelling options).
* 6 sets of “Penguin Colors!” game cards for Memory Match and “I Have; Who Has?” games.
You can also use them for sorting, patterning, and color-word practice.
* A “My Penguin Book Of Colors” trace, write & color emergent reader booklet, with a certificate of praise, and finally . . .
A set of color & BW penguin name cards.
Today's featured FREEBIE is an "oldie but goodie" called "Frosty Flakes" and practices fact families. I hope you find it useful.
Well that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.
Two of my 8 grandchildren are coming over today, and we're making snowman cookies!
Time to put my baker's hat on. Wishing you a day as sweet as frosting.
Had to pop back to share a photo of our fun morning!
