In this set you will find a PowerPoint slideshow along with many anchor charts and printables that are designed to provide a rich and exciting learning experience for your primary students!
Pages 4-9 can be printed and displayed on the wall or in a science or writing center for children to reference as they write and draw about penguins.
Page 10 contains colorful headings for your KWL chart about penguins.
Pages 11-19 can be used to guide students toward doing informational writing about penguins. Start by reading some non-fiction books about penguins and sharing the enclosed PowerPoint slideshow with your class. As your children learn about penguins, complete anchor charts as a way for them to communicate their learning. I have included colorful anchor chart headings on pages 10 and 11 (with a sample chart following). After printing, cut those headers out and glue or tape them to chart paper. Allow students to help fill in the columns. These anchor charts will provide scaffolding to students as they begin to complete informational writing about penguins on the included writing pages.
Pages 31-44 are duplicate slides from the enclosed PowerPoint slideshow.
The rest of the packet is filled with thematic printables for your students to practice their language arts and math skills!
