1-2-3 Come Do Some Penguin Activities With Me
I designed the Penguin Emergent Reader packet to go along with my Silly Shaped Penguin craft. The craftivity is today's featured FREEBIE.
For your convenience, I’ve included them in the packet.
You don’t have to make the Silly Shaped Penguins, but I really think they get children excited to make this short emergent reader booklet, which includes 50 Dolch sight words!
Children read the sentence, add end punctuation ( ? . ! ), trace & write the shape word, then trace, draw and color the shape.
I've included an extra page with the hexagon, pentagon & octagon if you study those as well.
The last page is also optional. “This penguin is in the shape of my shoe. It’s a special keepsake that I made for you.” where children trace their shoe, and add details to make it look like a penguin.
There are 2 size options for the booklet: full-page (great for a teacher’s edition), plus a 2-on-a-page half size, to conserve paper and ink.
The packet also includes:
* A set of trace & write the shape word cards, which can be turned into an Itty Bitty booklet, or used for a Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” game. I’ve also included a full-color set as well.
* A graphing extension
* A “Roll & Color” the shapes game, where children choose a partner & take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number they roll, is the matching numbered shape that they color.
* And finally, an “I Spy a Shape” game worksheet, which is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess. You can use the worksheet 5 times too!
Well that's it for today. I hope your kiddos have as much fun with the silly shaped penguins, as I did creating them.
Who knew? "Penguins have only one mate, and "propose" by giving then a pebble."
