Tug Of War and Mr. Popper's Penguins
Right now at school we are thinking about Mr. Popper's Penguins. Right now I am in the middle of the board because I think the birds might get lonely in their natural habitat. The title of our thinking is Tug of War. We have this board in our third grade classes because we wanted to have a different way of thinking about Mr. Popper's Penguins. Our thinking is changing throughout the book. There are two sides of thinking about if animals are better kept in their natural habitat or in captivity. We have been moving our clips from the captivity side from the middle and to the natural habitat side depending on what we have read. We all have ideas on what will happen. The last part we read was the penguins and Mr. Popper went to jail because Mr. Popper did not get enough sleep trying to keep the penguins cold so instead of saying "Royal" he said "Regal" so when they got to the Regal Theatre the Swenson's Performing Seals were there and Mr. Swenson got angry because the Popper's Performing Penguins were there. We are in big trouble. Bye guys!!
