Penguins - Evening Family Story Time

Family Story Time - Penguins!
Monday, February 25, 2013, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Attendance - 28 (15 children, 13 adults)

Book:  If you Were a Penguin by Wendall and Florence Minor

Board Story:  "Porter Penguin's Adventure"

Board Rhyme:  "There Was a Little Penguin"

Prop Story:  "Penny Penguin's Magical Meal"

Guessing Game:  "Baby Penguin, Baby Penguin"

Crafts:  Penguin Mask and Penguin ABC Dot to Dot

Notes:  There were several new families at this program. The ages ranged from infant to age 5. This was a younger than usual group. They were a bit more wiggly than usual as well but settled down when asked. When I talked about the North and South Poles, the five-year-old had no problem informing me that polar bears lived at the North Pole and that penguins lived at the South Pole. "Penny Penguin's Magical Meal" was the most liked story which made making the prop worth the effort. The children also enjoyed the guessing game. The penguin mask was also a big hit. It was fun to see one little guy go waddling out of the room holding up his mask.
