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!
