Penguins, Polar Bears, and Reindeer
The students always love a great non fiction unit of study. Much like our bats, owls and spiders unit I like to give the students choices. The students get to choose which animal to apply their learning of the standard with: penguins, polar bears or reindeers. During shared reading, I make sure to focus on the standard that they are learning and use texts from all of the topics to show them how to use the standard. I have these cute fact sheets pictured below that they can write 3 facts on. Once they have their facts in place we extend the learning over to their writing. They can then write an informational piece. They love it and it feels like a two for one special for me!
