Penguins!

This past wee, we dove into all things penguins and my kids had a blast!!
I like to start our themes by letting the kids give me their schema  about our topic. I record it with stickies on our chart, then we add new learning throughout the week.
After reading lots of informational stories, we worked together to create a tree map. We attached them to our cute penguin crafts.

We also loved reading Tacky the Penguin! We listed his character traits then compared him to real penguins. {I forgot to snap a pic of the comparison, but you can grab it by clicking on the document!}

Of course, on Friday, we had to do the experiment to see how penguins stay warm and the kids loved it!


We also used penguins to review some math skills { I didn't get many pictures since we were VERY into the lessons!}
We worked on decomposing 10...

All of the math activities are in my Playful Penguins pack {along with the craftivity}.

I'm off to *hopefully* finish updating my groundhog pack...to say it was bad is an understatement!! Happy Saturday!
