I just love your non-fiction books! They are perfect for the students to read. I also loved all the additional resources that you provided to use with the books. I can't wait to use this next year when we study penguins. I also purchased the reindeer book and we used that at Christmas time. LOVE THEM BOTH! Please continue making these books - I'm a big fan!

I have been putting the parts of the packet together. I'm going to start with one of the stories on our first day back with my Title 1 reading groups. It will be a great January project. Eventually we'll gather facts about penguins and the kids will write their own informational book. The 2 student books are awesome. It almost makes me want to go back to work early!

Product Questions & Answers

On  January 23, 2013,  Sue G. asked:
I think we found another small glitch today. We were filling out the Rockhopper penguin diagram and the kids were puzzled because there was an arrow pointing at the flipper, but no flipper in the word bank. We added flipper on our own since we knew that part from the Emperor penguin. ;)

On  January 17, 2013,  Sue G. asked:
I wanted to let you know that I think there's a small typo in the Rockhopper penguin book. On page 8 the sentence ends with "for ten days at time." My students and I think it should read "for ten days at a time." Are we right? :)
