My kids have REALLY enjoyed learning about penguins this past week. We started off the week with our can, have, are chart
and throughout the week we read some fun penguin books, but we are trying to focus on non-fiction now with the new common core standards. The kids can really pick up on so much information! Throughout the week they wrote about what they learned and made some cute projects!
I also made a 'life size' emperor penguin for the hallway. The children have loved measuring themselves against the penguin. I have overheard so many children from other classes talking about how they are bigger or smaller than an emperor penguin!
You can check out all of our Penguin centers HERE.
Next week we will move into our bear unit. The children are going to LOVE it. They get to bring in a teddy bear on Monday and the bear will hibernate in our cave all week. We will wake them up from hibernation on Friday, just in time for pajama day! Can't wait!
