Penguin Plans Day 3 and a freebie!

I have to head out for my son's basketball game so this is going to be a quickie!
Here's a picture of our Percy Penguin fair shares math activity [from my Penguin unit}.
The kids LOVE the song and they loved completing their book.  
Who doesn't love math when it involves music and food right?

Penguin Tree Map we used Shared Writing to complete this and the kids did their own.
We worked on this several times throughout the day when we had a few minutes.  We didn't complete this all in one sitting.

Some examples of their penguin writing for our Nonfiction book.

Here are my plans for tomorrow.  You can click on the picture of my plans to download it.

This is our chit chat message for tomorrow.
They loved finding out that a group of baby chicks is called a kindergarten!
The answers for the chart are:
A group of baby chicks is called a kindergarten.
Macaroni penguins dance to find their mate. 
[If the female likes the males dance she will be his mate.  If not, she waddles away.]
{Rockhopper penguins: to find a mate the male will bring a rock for building a nest to the female penguin if she likes him she will take the rock if not she waddles away. AHHH....penguin love! so cute!
