Storytime: Penguins

Opening Rhyme: Open them, Shut them

Book: Penguin Chick by Betty Tatham

Rhyme: Two Little Penguins
Two little penguins sitting on the ice;
One bows once; one bows twice.
Waddle little penguins; waddle away.
Come back penguins; time to play!

Book: A Penguin Story by Antoinette Portis

Rhyme: Six Little Penguins

Six little penguins off an iceberg did dive,
One bumped his beak, then there were five.
Five little penguins swam the ocean floor,
One saw a whale, then there were four.
Four little penguins spun around, whee-ee!
One spun off, then there were three!
Three little penguins, with nothing to do,
One went fishing, then there were two.
Two little penguins, having lots of fun,
One fell off, then there was one.
One little penguin, when the day was done,
Went home to sleep, then there were none.

Goodbye Rhyme

Craft: We made TP penguins. Mine looks more traditional, but I set out colored paper, and I saw blue penguins and green penguins and pink penguins.
