The perfect addition to your classroom library

There are many ways “The Surfing Penguin” can be used in the classroom. Many teachers use a single copy to read to their classes, while others use it as part of their guided reading rotations. Space is provided after each story for students to write answers to the reflection questions. The augmented reality experiences add a unique element – including games! – which can be used as a reward, early finisher activity or simply for fun! The book is designed to help teachers address parts of the Protective Behaviours curriculum, as well as Literacy, Health, Digital Technologies and ICT Capability.
