I read the story to my first graders, stopping on the page where Pam the aquatic biologist is walking her dog and comes up with a way to help Pierre. Her idea is to have a wet suit made for Pierre, but I stop reading before that point, and have my first graders brain storm a way to help Pierre. I give them this cute little penguin writing paper and have them write their ideas. They are so precious. Their ideas range from giving Pierre new feathers to buying him a sweater. This activity always makes me smile. After they've had a chance to write their ideas I read the rest of the story for the students to enjoy.

Although this is an extremely mild winter, January is typically filled with winter themes like snow, snowmen, and Arctic animals, so in that tradition, you can find some super fun new games in my TpT store for practice with nonsense word fluency, sight word recognition, and Dolch sight word phrases. Check them out.
