This week we learned all about Penguins and the importance of Martin Luther King Jr’s message.
- We were excited to return to the Art Studio.
Books we have Read
- Penguins!, by Anne Schreiber

- Art Studio
- We researched and learned several penguin facts and about different penguin species.
- We each illustrated our very own penguin on aluminum foil using markers and paint and recalled and wrote one penguin fact to share on our outside bulletin board.
- We learned that Emperor penguins carry their eggs in between their feet and practiced this in the classroom using fake eggs. This allowed us to get some gross motor activity and was a blast.
- We also continued our classroom winter exhibit by adding information about penguins.
- We had a penguin adoption center. Where the children could “adopt” their very own toy penguin.
- In Math we played cup challenge. The children practiced their counting and number sequencing by stacking cups in order from one to twenty five.
- We discussed the importance of Martin Luther King Jr’s dream of being kind and loving one another. We each illustrated and dictated our own dream to form our “Quilt of Dreams”.
