Opening Song

Book: Emperor Penguins Up Close by Carmen Bredeson

Song: (Tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a Little Penguin
In the sea.
I can swim as fast as can be!
When I catch a fish, just look at me.
I’m as proud as I can be.

Fingerplay:  Two Little Penguins
Two little penguins sitting on the ice (hold up two fingers)
One bows once, the other bows twice (made index fingers bow)
Waddle little penguins. Waddle away. (put fingers behind back)
Come back penguins. Time to play! (bring fingers to the front)

Song: Waddling Penguins (Tune: “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”)
Penguins, penguins having fun
Waddling in the shining sun
Waddling fast and waddling slow
Waddling to and waddling fro.
Penguins, penguin having fun
Waddling in the shining sun.

Flannel: Penguin Went Over the Iceberg (Tune: “The Bear Went Over the Mountain”)
The penguin went over the iceberg
The penguin went over the iceberg
The penguin went over the iceberg
to see what he could see.
But all that he could see
But all that he could see
was
The other side of the iceberg
The other side of the iceberg
The other side of the iceberg
was all that he could see.
