I think I'm TOO excited to make a post because my twin had her precious little baby today and that's ALL I can think about, but I will post pictures of our penguin fun this week.  Penguins are so much fun to learn about and to teach about!  They are one cool animal that God created.  Oh, and I must include a picture of Sullivan...you'll see why when you see his adorable little face!

Huddling together like penguins do to stay warm.

Fact book penguins...idea from Kim Jordano at kinderbykim.com

My kids love this roll a word game.  They roll the letter cubes, put the word together with the vowel in the middle, and then sound it out.  They have to decide if it's a real or silly word.

Here we sorted the fish by blends onto the penguins

I loved this idea by Deanna Jump to review odd and even!

I made life size penguins of 7 different kinds of penguins a few years ago and my students love to compare themselves to them...so that's what we are doing here.  There are also facts about each type of penguin on the back.

The smallest penguin is the Fairy Penguin

The largest penguin is the Emperor Penguin.

We also completed a K-W-L chart on our penguin unit.  We learned a lot of cool things about penguins like, that they can sleep in the water and standing up!

  22. Presently, "outside" autos are being acknowledged, as well as favored, even in the East. This is on account of they are improved than local brands, they consequently separate less frequently and last more, and they along these lines devalue less. One reason for this is on account of our automaker's situation is anything but hopeful by providing costly social insurance, decreasing the nature of their vehicles. cash advance san-diego
