This packet includes 8 ready-to-go writing prompts, plus an extra sheet of lined paper that you can copy onto the back of each prompt for those students who love to write, write, write! They are perfect for easy, no-prep centers or great additions to any unit about penguins!
Each prompt is available on primary- lined and single- lined paper. Two prompts are specific to the Tacky the Penguin stories by Helen Lester, while the others are suited to any penguin unit. There’s also an “I Can” sheet that you can display at centers!
The prompts are:
*If Tacky the Penguin came to my school..
*If I brought a penguin to school...
*Would a penguin make a good pet? Why or Why Not?
*My Penguin Number Story
*I like penguins because...
*Write 3 things you would do with Tacky the Penguin if
you got to spend a day with him. Illustrate your ideas!
*Write 3 facts about penguins. Illustrate each fact.
As a bonus, I’ve included templates and directions for a fun penguin
craft that you can use during centers or a whole-group activity! Click "preview" for a closer look!
