*****NOTE: I have an AWESOME PENGUIN UNIT that I have posted that goes along with this unit. It focuses on the nonfiction aspect of reading. It includes many graphic organizers, an adorable penguin glyph, and a penguin research paper activity. If you are interested, you can purchase this unit separately or I offer a bundle that includes both the Mr. Popper's Penguin unit and the Penguin Unit at a discounted price.

On short notice my team put me in charge of a book group; I love Mr. Popper's Penguins, but didn't want to create my own student work book for it. This is worth every penny, cute, organized and accurate. My group will flow, and be effective. Thanks Nicole!

How do I order the bundled package (novel unit and penguin unit)?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 10, 2012Nicole Shelby answered:
Hi,

I have the penguin and novel unit available as a bundled package in my store. Here is the link to the product: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Mr-Poppers-Penguins-Book-Study-and-Penguin-Unit-Bundle

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for checking out my products.

n/a
On  August 20, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Is this aligned to Common Core?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 20, 2012Nicole Shelby answered:
The Common Core Standards are not identified in the book unit, but I designed the unit with the Common Core Standards that I wanted to cover. The unit focuses on these skills from the 4th grade Common Core Standards:
* graphic organizer for using context clues to identify the meanings of unknown words.
* Problem/Solution
* Cause/Effect
* Character Traits
* Making Inferences
* Figurative Language (similes)

In my classroom, I used the Penguin Unit (also available in my store and in a bundled package with the novel unit), to hit more of the Common Core Standards with nonfiction.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Nicole
