We continued discussing the importance of questioning while reading texts. We completed reading The Emperor's Egg. We have been reading other non-fiction texts on Penguins.
Ask your child who mainly takes care of the emperor penguin's egg and where do they keep the egg to keep it warm? The children even tried walking with a fuzzball on their feet to see what it is like to walk like a penguin with an egg in tow.
We worked on identifying adverbs and consonant clusters. Ask your child to act out an adverb for you!
It's not as easy as the penguins make it look!
