Today, we read about penguins, and then we made one of our own. Playful Little Penguins by Tony Mitton showed us penguins sliding, swimming, and diving together, and later helping a new friend. In Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester, we laughed at Tacky's odd behavior, which saved the day for his friends. Finally, Virgil and Owen by Paulette Bogan showed us how not to make friends!

Since we read so many books about fictional penguins, we also looked at the photographs in Seymour Simon's book, Penguins. There are so many different kinds!

With precut shapes, we assembled our own penguin, then collaged white materials onto his front. We even gave him a fish to hold in his beak!
