Chill Out with a Cool Book!

Hello Everyone! Hope your first few days back have gone smoothly! It is as cold as the arctic around here which makes me think PENGUINS! Here is a penguin book report idea if anyone is interested My kids are into giving book commercials to advertise their books right after reader's workshop. This writing activity is basically the commercial written down. They rated the books at the end. Commercials really have helped motivate my students to read different books that they may not have picked up on their own. Check this one out! Penguins with personality!

You can pick 
up my whole penguin unit here:

How cute! Fits right in since we are reading Mr. Popper's Penguins at the moment. Thank you for sharing it! Oh, and I love the music on your blog. I keep your blog open as I blog hop just to hear the great music. Mercy Me is one of my faves.
