Penguins, Penguins, Penguins!

In first grade we are listening to Mr. Popper's Penguins as our read aloud chapter book!  

This book has inspired our first graders to want to learn more about penguins!  So, to honor their request, we are starting a short focused research project on penguins! 
We started by figuring out what we know and what we want to learn about penguins. We created a Can, Have, Are page about penguins.

-Next, first graders started to collect pengiun facts!
Here are our next steps:

-Students will compare fiction penguin texts to nonfiction texts, learning more about the author's purpose for writing each text.

-Students will compile their facts into a short nonfiction write up about penguins! 

We are so excited to share our facts! Here are a few pictures of us doing research with the emergent reader database Pebble Go!

Ask your child to share a penguin fact with you!
