It's A Penguin Palooza Party!


Waddle right into The Primary Pack  rookery this week and enjoy our explosion of penguin products that we hope will make your classroom a more "polar" and pleasant place to be this month!  

I am linking up with Jenn from Crayons and Cuties in Kindergarten and Ashley from One Sharp Bunch to offer a fun freebie that I created a LONG time ago, but that still packs a one-two punch when it comes to a rhyming good time!  

Your young readers will love the craft stick puppet patterns included in this pack and can use them to act out the poems about each animal.  I make the poems "pocket-size" by printing 2-4 per page, and keep them on a ring at our literacy stations for easy-access.

I also print each poem full-size so that each student can highlight the rhyming pairs of words they find, re-read the poem to a partner, and then take it home to read it again to a parent or sibling for fluency practice!

Check out this fun and free pack {HERE}!

If you enjoy these fluency poems, you'll find more in this resource!  It also includes fiction and 
non-fiction writing task cards as well.  I've marked it 50% off, so grab it for $1.50 through
January 19th!

Please hop along to collect more freebies from my colorful gal pals!
