Splish! Splash! Penguin Inferencing

Last week our 'wonderful' Treasures story was Splish! Splash! Animal Baths. The kiddos loved learning about how animals bathe and try to stay clean. Since its January and lots of us have penguins on the mind, my teaching partner, Tiffany, thought it would be a great extension to the story to have our kids  infer and write about how they think penguins stay clean. We encouraged them to use what they already knew about penguins and what they learned about how other animals bathe from reading the story. They had a blast with this activity. We used Mrs. Lemons's Christmas Penguin template from over at Step Into 2nd Grade.

  3. Great web page! I don`t imagine I`ve seen every one of the angles of this theme the way in which you`ve pointed them out. You`re a accurate star, a rock star guy. You`ve got a great deal to say and know so much about the subject that i think you ought to just teach a class about it ....greens plus
