More Penguins . . . More Write Around the Room!

It seems that your students are a lot like mine . . . they like to get up and move!  I've heard back from quite a few of you with positive comments regarding my Write Around the room activities.  It's really just a great way to get them out of their seats in a productive way.  I would have posted this one sooner except my husband's ancient laptop has gone in for (what we hope is) repairs.  That means sharing the one computer, but he has messages to prepare on the weekends for the middle schoolers at our church.  But hey!  It's finally done and I hope you and your kids enjoy it!

As we study synonyms our little penguin friends are going to keep us on our toes in search of matching pairs.  Each student will have the list of words without a synonym pair.  The goal is to find all the penguins running (posted) around the room and match the penguin's word to one of the synonyms on the word list.  Simple directions, but they still have to do some thinking!

Here it is . . . enjoy!
