Penguins Research Project
This week we are starting our Penguins Research Project! We start with a schema map then each day we use a read aloud and/or video to learn about penguins. Using a read alouds, we create a tree chart and write about penguins. To learn vocabulary, we label penguins. And of course we eat a penguin snack and more!
Our penguin snack is a Townhouse cracker, cream cheese, black olives and carrots!
Here’s a fun penguin art project that also teaches kids about symmetry!
Fold the paper, students squirt paint on half the paper. Close. Rub. And you have a symmetrical penguin.

Then we are continuing Vowel Bootcamp! Our focus is on CVC-E words. We do one vowel a week. Monday is a circle chart, Tuesday is word building, Wednesday is word writing in whole group using whiteboards. Thursday the students do word writing on their own. Friday students do a word/picture match.
For small group work, we use our Vowel Bootcamp decodable readers!
