Penguin Fun

I wanted to do much more with Penguins this year but we have had so many snow days we didn't have as much time as I would have liked. I saw so many great activities that other teachers were doing in their classrooms. I will definitely have to remember these neat ideas so I can do them next year with my kiddos. We did do some activities though with penguins. Here are some of the books we read.



We also made words from the letters in "penguin." We discuessed the traits of a penguin and students completed a writing prompt activity where they imagined they had a penguin as a pet. Here are a few pics of completed pet penguins.


We make two "snazzy snacks" each month. We made a "Penguin Treat" to go along with our theme of penguins. Want to make your own penguin treat? Check out http://www.mswinston.com/ for the recipe!Photobucket
