Penguins and a Manic Monday { freebie }

Monday, January 27, 2014
Penguins are everywhere in my classroom right now!!!!  I created a new penguin unit and updated my polar regions unit so we are busy having loads of fun!!!

We are soo busy learning, reading, sharing.  I love when the kids on their own time ( Daily 5 reading ) or DEAR choose a non fiction book about what we are studying and tell me new facts they learned.  That will warm any teachers heart!!!

Here are some pictures from last week.  The cute penguin was from the super talented Sarah over at First Grader at Last!  I think I found it on Pinterest and just added the fun crest on his head.

How cute is this handprint penguin?!?

I also have a penguin informational writing freebie that would be great to use when you study penguins...

Although for my Manic Monday Freebie I thought it would be fun to share one I just made in honor of the Shh!!!  Dare I say - Super Bowl!!!  It has 9 pages of a variety of skills that is themed around football!!!  I can't believe it took me this long to make a football themed pack as I'm married to a football coach and PE teacher...LOL


Link on up with Charity and share your latest freebie...
