Penguins ~ Little Laplinks

It’s time for January’s Little Laplinks! We are going to do a lapbook about penguins and since Valerie put up a great lapbook that she created, and Squidoo has an awesome penguin lapbook lens, I thought I would share my list of books I plan to order or check out from the library to supplement our lapbook!

Penguin (Watch Me Grow)
Busy Penguins
Plenty of Penguins
The Penguin Family Book
These Birds Can’t Fly (Rookie Read-About Science)
Penguins!
Penguin Chick (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science)
The Penguin: A Funny Bird (Animal Close-Ups)
All Aboard Science Reader Station Stop 2 Emperor Penguins (All Aboard Science Reader)
SeaWorld Library #2: Baby Penguin
Nanu, Penguin Chick
The Emperor’s Egg, a Read and Wonder Book

And in case you REALLY want to spoil your kid, here’s this adorable Webkinz Lil Kinz Penguin! If you don’t know about Webkinz, you can check out their site here. My son has one little dog and he enjoys his computer time playing on their site. I enjoy the learning that takes place while he thinks he is “playing.” :)

And, at the last minute I found this cute penguin to make! We used to do projects like these in my K class when I taught school. They are great for listening to directions (also cutting, shapes, colors, etc.).
