penguin number sequence match
The free membership printable this week is penguin number sequence match for number recognition and review. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out. I also laminated them for durability.
I set the penguin number cards and number circles out along with craft sticks. I used velcro on the cards ... circles and craft sticks.
In this activity the children put the penguin number cards in numerical order and then put the matching number circles beneath the penguin cards. Play continued until all numbers were put and order and matched. You can also do this activity without matching and just have it be a straight sequencing activity.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday February 16th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added penguin alphabet sequence match.

We made puffy paint penguins after circle time today. It was a great project for scissor skills ... sensory and fine motor development. We used black and orange cardstock paper to make the the penguins. We free cut the penguin shapes but I have included patterns that you can trace around on the cardstock paper.
The next step was to make the puffy paint which was really easy. The children mixed 1 cup of shaving cream and 1/2 cup of white glue together with a craft stick. The puffy paint should be like a thick marshmallow topping ... if it is not you can add more glue.
The children applied the puffy paint to the penguins using either their fingers or craft sticks. The penguins took a while to dry because of the thickness of the paint.

We are working a lot on shapes and pre-writing skills this month. I made penguin shape tracers for the children to use in our writing center. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out.
I laminated all of the shape tracers and set them out with crayola washable markers. I made the tracers with the same shapes on them and then with mixed shapes on them. Children were free to choose which tracers they wanted to use.
In this activity children trace the shapes with washable markers. We then talk about what shapes are on each tracer.
