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.
