Every January I love reading penguin stories! My favorite penguin story is Cinderella Penguin by Janet Perlman. My students love the illustrations and how Cinderella Penguin wears a glass flipper!
After we read and discuss the main events of the story, I have my students summarize the story using the Somebody, Wanted, But, So Then, summary graphic organizer. After they write their summary, they create a Cinderella Penguin or Penguin Prince to display their summary. One of my girls had the idea to trace the foot pattern on white paper so it looks like Cinderella Penguin's glass flipper.
I love to see how creative my class can be when it comes to designing their penguins!
This year my class really got into designing and creating royal attire for their penguins! My girls made their Cinderella Penguin extra fancy with princess hats. :)
