I is for ice...

The kids handled the challenge of cutting curved lines 
Playing with plastic penguins and floating icebergs
Using our premath skills to estimate penguins length
We learned penguins feed their young by coughing up food from their stomach
And that penguins lay only one egg a year
A penguin rookery 
Creative kids putting a penguin inside the clay egg so it can hatch out

Rainbow fish

We read the story rainbow fish about a fish who learns to share
Afterwards the kids practiced cutting
And gluing scales on their own rainbow fish
And finished by drawing eyes
