Product Description
Kids LOVE Penguins!

As a 3rd grade teacher it isn't always easy to find fun thematic activities, lessons, printables and resources that meet the rigor and expectations of the higher grades. That is why I am so very proud of this 100+ page penguin-themed packet chock full of materials for EVERY subject area.

This product has enough quality printables to last for over 2 full weeks of instruction. There are activities for reading, writing, math, social studies, science, and social skills. The packet also includes a list of fiction and non-fiction penguin themed books as well as links to online videos and sample penguin crafts.

Everything has been done for you. All you need to do is add literature (I used my local library to gather over 50 books and printed individual student books free using a trial membership on the Reading A to Z website).

I designed the packet to be used with my 3rd graders, but there are enough differentiated materials that it would be appropriate for use in grades 2-5 as well as for homeschoolers. The packet currently lists Common Core Alignment for 3rd grade. I will be updating it over the weekend to include alignment to the 2nd, and 4th grade standards that are covered as well.

Below is the table of contents and Common Core Standards each activity meets:
