Penguins Partner Play, Winter Partner Play, Fluency Activity
Students LOVE partner plays and reader's theater. But research shows they are great for building fluency and comprehension skills too. Penguins on Parade is a winter partner play about two young penguins who are still learning. It's their first day of penguin school, and your students will love how Tolly and Poppy navigate it. The play includes before, during, and after reading activities for vocabulary, deeper comprehension, and additional fluency practice.
HOW TEACHERS CAN USE THIS PARTNER PLAY IN THE CLASSROOM:
The play is three pages in length and includes two voices. I recommend using this resource as a fluency center during your guided reading block or using it with your small groups. Each of my partner plays take about 3-4 days to complete because of the supplementary materials included, but teachers can pick and choose which activities work best for their students' needs.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PARTNER PLAY RESOURCE?
The partner play comes with the following activities and materials:
- 4 page Penguins on Parade Script
- Quick Write about Penguins
- A vocabulary page (Using Context Clues) and word cards
- Questioning task cards (12 cards), and a Response Form
- Four Square Comprehension Page, and
- Penguin Pride Writing Extension
MORE ABOUT THIS RESOURCE:
Teachers can use the activities and play for paired reading during Read with Partner or the Guided Reading block. Students will practice finding text evidence to make comparisons, analyze character traits and development, and story elements.
