Five Royal Penguins
From: PUBYAC Digest, Vol 13, Issue 7
One royal penguin with nothing much to do,
Called for his brother and then there were two.
Two royal penguins happy as could be,
Called for their sister and then there were three.
Three royal penguins wished there were more,
Called for their mother and then there were four.
Four royal penguins learning how to dive,
Called for their father and then there were five.
One, two, three, four, five!
Each penguin has different color eyes, so I showed all of them before starting out the rhyme and asked the children to call out each character. After saying the rhyme once, I took down the penguins and had the children recall the colors as we said it again.
I also made a penguin guessing game to introduce the theme of the day that was inspired by our craft.
What do you get when you take a circle,
and you cut it in half,
