Penguin Shuffle

                   jan 7 035
Story time today started with the book Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice by Steve Metzger.  It’s a version of Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.

After the story I handed each child ‘penguin feet’ (paper plates, the cheap kind) and we waddled around.  The paper plates allow us to slide easier on the carpet.

I introduced a short little song that I found on CanTeach, called Penguin Shuffle.

“Penguins shuffle, shuffle, shuffle to the left, left, left.  
Penguins shuffle, shuffle, shuffle to the right, right, right.  
They give a little wiggle, 
they give a little hop.  
Then they waddle around the iceberg till its time to stop.”

Here’s a little video showing us doing the Penguin Shuffle.

I also put together this version to use on the felt board.

The penguins are attached with velcro so they can come off as we say it.
