Song Activity

I’m a Little Penguin
(tune of I’m a Little Teapot)

I’m a little penguin
Black and white.
Stout and fluffy
What a sight!

I can’t fly
but I love to swim.
So I’ll waddle to the water
and dive right in!


Flannelboard – Five Baby Penguins

Book – Penguin in Love- by Salina Yoon – When Penguin finds a lost mitten on the ice one day, he wonders who it belongs to―after all, every mitten has a mate! Prolific author/illustrator Salina Yoon’s spare text and bright, energetic illustrations bring to life this endearing story celebrating love in its many forms, reminding us that the greatest adventure begins when you find your other half.

Song – “Did You Ever See a Penguin?”

Action Song & Puppet: “Did You Ever See a Penguin?”
Did you ever see a penguin, a penguin, a penguin?
Did you ever see a penguin waddle this way and that?
Waddle this way and that way, waddle this way and that way
Did you ever see a penguin waddle this way and that?
