Mr. Popper's Penguins: Summer Reading Ch 1 & 2

In an effort to keep reading high on the list of "likeable activities" in our house, I put together a Chapter by Chapter lesson plan for the book, Mr. Popper's Penguins. J has already started and so far its a hit!  Getting him started is a challenge, but once he opens the book he's determined to do all the activities. 

I started with the information I found at Home School Share and went from there.  I tweaked and added and cut to fit with our style and the things J likes to do. 

We have no set schedule, I am taking a "when you are ready" approach.  The only requirement is that he read a chapter and complete the associated activities before moving on to the next chapter. 

Here's a peek at what I've put together for the first 2 chapters!  You are free to use, just don't publish as your own!  If you share please link back to me for credit!

****update**** In these lessons there is a puzzle mentioned. This is the exact puzzle we used and loved it! 

Happy Reading!

  1. I am hoping to read this book to Robbie before he sees the movie. (My husband is a movie fiend, so I'm sure Robbie will see the movie. I just have to move quickly to find a copy of the book.)

    Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I remember reading Mr Popper's Penguins when I was young. It was always a fun book to me. I love your lesson plans, they are just the right style of learning for me and my boys. Will you publish the other chapters?

  3. I may have to post the other chapters for you! I am thrilled you like them! I didn't expect to have any requests for the rest!
