You and your students will love reading this cute little reader together and retelling it again and again. This black and white version is printed 2 per page and also includes retelling character pieces.
With students, we read this book together for shared reading several times, using the larger color copy available for FREE in my TPT store. We point out the sight words we know, talk about how the text matches the pictures and how we can use the pictures to help us figure out unfamiliar words, practice reading fluently, and act out the story with students pretending to be the penguins and polar bear. We also use the book in small groups. After reading the book several times together, the students color the black and white copies and practice reading their books together and independently. By this point, they are very familiar with the text and love reading it all by themselves! :)
