pink penguins. We read Pink! by Lynne Rickards. What a cute book! Afterwards, the children used construction paper and scrapbook paper to make their penguins. I didn't give them any patterns. They had to listen and follow directions as we made each piece. I love how different they turned out. The last part of our project was to write about their pink penguin. This is probably the best they have done with writing all year!! They were so excited about it. Most started out the same way "My penguin's name is ____". After that I allowed them to write anything they wanted (a description of their penguin, about their penguin's family, activities their penguin likes, where their penguin lives...). After I modeled mine they got started. It was SO quiet in the room as they created their descriptions.
