The kids really enjoyed the unit on Penguins.  It was a quick week to learn as many facts about these funny creatures that we could.  We did a KWL to organize our information.  The K stands for what we KNOW, the W is for WHAT we want to learn, and the L is for what we LEARNED.  We learned that penguins are birds but they can’t fly, there are 17 different kinds of penguins, some even live where it is warm, they are great swimmers, and we learned the words tobogganing, fledging, rookery.  Ask your child the meaning of these words.  We also learned that Emperor penguin dad’s are the best because they protect the eggs and go for 2 months without eating! They wrote stories about being a penguin and came up with some great ideas.  I will share these writing samples at conferences.  Our centers were penguin themed also.  We did antonym match (opposites) penguin contractions, penguin number line race to the igloo, penguin fact families, and penguin subtraction facts using penguin counters.  We also did a listening center on the Emperor penguin and sequenced events of how a baby penguin is born and raised by the mom and dad. Their favorite project was making the snow globes showing the penguin families. They love to show off their projects!
