Some time ago I created this Pre-K Penguin Pack which we never ended up using. I had big plans to use it as a preschool supplement for my little ones to use while we were reading Mr. Popper’s Penguins. We were going to study Antarctica at the same time and just have some fun learning about penguins. I’m still hoping to do this at some point. I ended up postponing Mr. Popper’s Penguins until later this year but now I forget why. In the meantime, I’ve got this file to share! (Download link at the end of the post.)
If you are familiar with Pre-K packs from all over blogland then most of these worksheets will be a familiar format. For our use, I purchased some display books (similar to these) that are full of sheet protectors. Many of the pages from the pack I print on regular paper and they go into this display book for the kids to use with dry-erase markers. That way we can erase them and they can use them over and over again.
These are the pages I print on regular paper for the notebook (this is the same order as the pages in the file): ~ Notebook Cover Page ~ Which One is Different ~ Colour the Penguin ~ Pre-Writing Practice ~ ~ Penguin Maze ~ Penguin Counting ~ Penguin Graphing ~ Penguin Counting Clip Cards ~ ~ Find the Letter P/p ~ What Comes Next? ~ You may wish to laminate the clip cards, sometimes I use them as worksheets instead. The What Comes Next? page can be printed on regular paper and either used as a worksheet or as a cut-and-paste exercise.
The last pages I print on cardstock, laminate and cut apart: ~ Penguin Number Strip Puzzle ~ Letter Pp Play-dough Mat ~ Letter Pp Sorting ~ ~ Penguin Magnet Page ~ Penguin 4-piece Puzzles ~ Shadow Matching ~
Jitterbug loved his notebook at the beginning of the year. Once I had this pack made it’s been easy to create a page here and there for whatever theme we are working on. Ladybug also loves to have her own notebook, I just don’t put quite as many pages in hers yet. I created this file according to what my kids were enjoying at the time, I hope they will be of use to some of you. When we do our penguin unit later this year I’ll be sure to post some links to other resources. This file can be downloaded here and is also listed on my Printables page.
