Emperor Penguin The Emperor Penguin, Aptenodytes forsteri, is the largest penguin. Penguins are birds that cannot fly, but penguins swim very well and spend most of their lives in the sea. Habitat: The Emperor Penguin lives in colonies on pack ice in Antarctica. It is kept warm in the harsh environment by a thick layer of blubber (fat) and by insulating down (feathers). Feathers: Penguins have shiny, waterproof feathers that help keep their skin dry. They have more feathers than most other birds - about 70 feathers per square inch. Each year, penguins molt, losing their old feathers and growing new ones. Anatomy: The Emperor Penguin is up to 3.7 feet (1.1 m) tall and weighs up to 65 pounds (30 kg); this about half the size of an adult person. Males and females look very similar. Like all penguins, Emperor Penguins have a big head, a short, thick neck, a streamlined shape, a short, wedge-shaped tail, and tiny, flipper-like wings. They have webbed feet which they use for swimming. Penguins are countershaded; they have a lighter color on the belly and a darker color on their back; this coloration helps camouflage them when they are in the water, hiding them from predators. Diet: Emperor Penguins are carnivores (meat-eaters) who hunt in the sea. They eat fish and squid. Reproduction: After the female lays a single egg, she goes off to sea. The male incubates the egg, keeping it warm on his feet, enveloped by the stomach, in a "brood pouch" for 72 days (during the coldest part of the Antarctic year). He feeds his chick with "milk" produced by a gland in his esophagus; during this time, he loses half his body weight. home

Main Idea and Details The topic is what a piece of writing is about. The main idea is the most important idea about the topic. Supporting details are small pieces of information. They tell about the main idea.
Graphic Organizers A graphic organizer will help you organize information as you read. You can make a graphic organizer to show the main idea and supporting details of a piece of writing.
Read “The Coldest Continent” on p.151. Then we will fill in the graphic organizer to show the main idea and details of the first paragraph. Topic:Main Idea:Detail: home

Vocabulary Strategy for Synonyms Context Clues Sometimes when you are reading, you come across a word you don’t know. The author may give you a synonym for the word. A synonym is a word that has the same or almost the same meaning as another word. Look for a word that might be a synonym. It can help you understand the meaning of the word you don’t know.
1.Look at the words very near the word you don’t know. The author may give a synonym in the same sentence. 2.If not, look in the sentences around the sentence with the unfamiliar word. The author may use a synonym for the word. 3.Try the synonym in place of the word in the sentence. Does it make sense?
As you read “Penguins Are Birds,” (p.153) look for synonyms to help you understand the meanings of the vocabulary words. home
Syllable Patterns V/CV, VC/V Dividing words into syllables can help you read new words lemon These words have just one consonant in the middle. From looking at the words, we can't tell if the consonant goes with the first syllable or the second syllable. If the consonant ends the first syllable, the vowel sound is short. If it goes with the second syllable, the vowel sound is long.
If I don't know a word like this, I can try saying it with a long e: l mon. That doesn't sound right, so I'll try a short e in the first syllable: lem on. That's a word I know! The short vowel sound must be correct.

Read these sentences. Use the underlined words a new sentence. The students cheered loudly for their team. Grandma placed a handmade lace doily under the vase. Larry is my oldest sister's boyfriend. The man scowled and turned away.
