This product is packed full of activities to use with your students during reading and center time. Included are 6 penguin themed ELA activities perfect for guided reading, centers, seatwork, morning work and more! Activities will help keep students engaged while reviewing learned skills - letter identification, letter sounds, sight word recognition, rhyming, CVC words, and more.
1. Initial Sound Match - Students match the eggs containing a lowercase letter and two pictures to the appropriate penguin holding an uppercase letter. Included is a printable students can complete after matching all the eggs to their penguin.
2. Roll...Say...Keep - Students put a sight word card in each box and roll their dice. Students need to read the word in the corresponding box. If they can read it, they may keep the card, and should replace it with a new one from the pile. If they are unable to read the word, they lose a turn.
3. Find the Egg - Put the word cards in a pocket chart. Without letting the students see, hide 1 or all of the eggs behind one of the sight words. Students take turns reading the words. If they are correct, they get to keep the card. When taking the card from the pocket chart, if an egg is revealed they get a point or win the game. If they are unable to read the word, they lose a turn.
**I have included 3 writing pages to be used with or separate from the above games. Students use each sight word in a sentence.
4. Penguin Write the Room - Print, laminate, and cut out the penguin word cards and hang throughout your classroom. Students walk around the room searching for the cards and recording the words on their paper. Included are 2 versions of the recording page.
5. Rhyming Pairs - Students should match a penguin card to a fish card, looking at the picture in the corner and making a rhyme. I have included 2 recording sheets to use to extend each activity after students complete the matches.
6. CVC Word Builders - Using magnetic letters, letter tiles, or a dry erase marker, students 'pop their sounds' to write the corresponding CVC words. I have included 2 versions of a recording sheet for students to complete after building their words.
