Penguin Books

The children put their penguin books together today, complete with a dedication page and a table of contents.  Their writing has improved so much over the past couple of weeks.  Some were writing multiple pages this week (super wowed and proud)!  They used a 'key words' frame to help organize and focus their writing on one topic.  Today, we revisited the 'what we already know' and 'what we wonder' charts from the first day of our penguin study.   Some of the statements were incorrect, which the students were quick to identify.  They were also able to answer many of the questions they had asked.
