Five Little Penguins

Over the years I have gone to many kindergarten workshops and classes.  I have read more magazines, books and now blogs than I can remember.  So I apologize that I do not remember where I found this wonderful idea but it is another one of those "old" ideas that I LOVE!

I have been creating this book for maybe ten years now.  This year I made it part of my January math stations.  At station number one, the children had to draw one mommy penguin and three baby chicks.  I had several sheets in the bucket to give the children an idea of how to draw penguins. 

Then when everyone finished all the stations.  I collected all the penguins and cut them out and put them together into a class book called, Five Little Penguins.  

I read the book, Antarctica to the children.  We discussed sunsets and then I let the children get to work on water coloring sunsets.
