We also have this book as part of our Reading Comprehension/Guiding Readers units.  

The Emporer’s Egg Video

Because we read these books each day, it is a wonderful idea to offer another example of reading fluency and intonation.  This is a great place to find videos that go with our Engaging Readers book series.

 

We learned a TON about penguins.  I loaded the file onto my iPad and we just read it off the Promethean board.  That was easy!

We also practiced holding an egg on our feet.  My class all agreed that it would get old really FAST!

Penguin Math and Literacy Centers

Keeping with the theme of “All Things Penguins,” we also have some penguin-themed centers.

We have two different word family puzzles.  One working with the short vowel sound “e”, and the other working with the “-old” word family.  In this way, I can reach all of my students’ needs.

  1. We are creatures of habit! A little shake up in the schedule is HUGE in Kindergarten. I need reminders and a little hand holding too. I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one who flubs an anchor chart here or there. Sticky notes are life savers! Thanks for having this great link up, I always find great ideas here. 🙂

  2. This is great! Thanks for sharing. Tell me about that cool dice in penguin play, please 😉
