What We're Reading Wednesday-Polar Animals

 
We’re in the middle of all things Polar right now, and I love it! Polar Animals is one of my most loved units! The kiddos love it, too! Here are some of our favorite reads!

This book is the most fun! It opens from the bottom and shows Arctic life on the top page and Antarctic life on the bottom page. The photographs are stunning! Great book for Compare/Contrast!
 My very favorite book about the poles!


And, of course, you can’t do penguins without Tacky! We do love some Tacky the Penguin! The whole series is adorable!


Another precious fiction series is this fractured fairy tales set by Janet Perlman! Love, Love, Love these penguins!! 




Jeff Bauer has an awesome Science Vocabulary series. Here’s a sample of his Polar Animal series. Love the fast facts in these books!

Are you familiar with Rigby PM’s nonfiction animal series? There are 6 books in each series. LOVE them! We used the nocturnal animals set in October and the caribou book from the Polar animal series in December.
I realize this is NOT a Polar animal, but this pic was much clearer.

The PM series begins with Pets at guided reading levels H and I and run through levels N and O. The Polar Animal books are the most difficult set, but my independent readers will eat them up!

We also love this easy to read series from Melvin and Gilda Berger.
Other book my kiddos and I love!


 Hope you found something you like!
