.....Have fun reading about penguins with this Penguins Passage and Activity for INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS...... great for a winter time reading activity or any time.
This pack includes a short close reading passage to help students better understand a few basic facts about penguins.
The passage is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue sideways into an interactive reading notebook. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage. This is a short close reading type passage but it is filled with fun info.
In addition to the passage, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of "isolation". One focuses on determining where penguins live.The other is four comprehension questions using the text.
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
