How can I write a short paragraph (show; don't tell) for the novel I've read.It's called Mr.Popper's Penguins?
The story of Mr. Popper's Penguins is a favourite children's story which tells of an incredible situation but it is written seriously. This is the tale of Mr. Popper, a mild little house painter whose main interest in life is the study of the Antarctic. An explorer presents Mr. Popper with a penguin that he promptly calls Captain Cook. In order to keep Captain Cook from becoming lonely, Mr. Popper obtains Greta from the zoo. After the arrival of ten baby penguins, Mr. Popper has a freezing plant put into the basement of his house and the furnace is moved upstairs to the living room.
You may decide to not use the first sentence and just write something like the rest.
In a short paragraph situation like this you should stick to telling your readers the basic facts of -
Who Where When Why and What is happening.
Does anyone have any fun activities for Mr. Popper's Penguins?
When I was in the 3rd grade, my teacher had us all bring in an empty 2 liter soda bottle. Then, we painted the bottle white and used felt and fabrics to turn it into a penguin. After we were finished, she hung them all from the ceiling and after a few weeks we got to take them home. Hope this helps!
