P for Penguin Week 2

We are currently working on our Mommy & Me ABC units.  This was our second week of the letter P and penguins (you can see last week's post here)!  Unless otherwise specified, all of the printables are from my Mommy & Me ABC Printables, which are free as we complete them (for a detailed list of all the materials in the printables, check out this post).

 This was his desk setup. On the left is his magnetic calendar.  His white board had some alphabet magnets, and his fridge phonics set.  The shelf had a some of Ps and a bunch of penguins.

 P and Penguin Puzzles
We did both printable and store bought puzzles.
 Play Dough
Play dough is always a hit!.  We used some cookie cutters and his dough stampers to make some Ps.  We also used play dough snakes to form a P.
 Letter Clipping
 Matching uppercase and lowercase Ps.

Penguin Lacing 
"Jumping Rope" with the lacing string.

Alphabet Sensory Tub
I added his Penguin Toob to his alphabet tub and he loved it!  He even got my brother's girlfriend to play in the noodles with him for a long time!
 Shape Icebergs
We reviewed shapes by putting each pengin in his "home." For some reason he loved the idea of helping the lost penguins (much more than just playing a matching game)!
 Peg Letter P
Some serious peg play with his lowercase P.
Playing the "flute."
Penguin Cutting Strips
 He has really been into cutting lately!  We used his training scissors to cut apart some penguins
 Penguin Number Cards
We matched number tiles to the cards with the correct number of penguins, numbers 6-10 this week.
Pattern Shape Penguin
We worked together to make the pattern shape penguin (from our Zoo Animal Set) using magnetic pattern blocks.  For some reason he likes doing it on the alphabet box better than a white board.
 Snow Painting Penguins
I made some snow paint and printed some penguins onto card stock.  He had a blast and I think it turned out pretty cute!  Using the tray and the smock was a good idea though!
 Other Tot School Activities
Playing his own version of Qwirkle by sorting the tiles into shapes as he drew them from the bag.

  1. Woman, do you sleep? Haha...just checked out your printables and they look great. Linking to my facebook page!

    1. I could say the same of you! You do so much! I also have to say I'm jealous of some of your resources! I can't find any linking memory or photographic memory kits here!
