Penguins anyone?

I don't know about any of you, but I am so ready for Christmas vacation!  My class seems to have forgotten how to listen and sit still - oh my!  I'm sure tomorrow will be better!  Right? 

I am so excited for vacation that I have been planning for January and getting things organized.  I've just posted a literacy word work station with long vowels.  I was trying to decide on a theme when I came across some adorable penguins by Graphics From the Pond.  I mean really ... who could resist these cuties?

To use this activity students will sort 30 penguin cards with pictures onto sorting mats.  Since I am always busy doing guided reading while students are completing this I have included a recording sheet.  It helps me not only check for understanding but know they were on task.  I have also included an "I can..." student instruction card to keep those "I don't know what to do" comments to a minimum.

And, since ink has gotten to be so expensive :( I have included the entire product in color and black and white.

You can find this word work activity HERE at my TPT store.

As always, I'll send a copy to the first 3 people who comment on this post.  Don't forget your email!
