Nothing beats hands on learning! Setting out sensory bins and trays allows children to learning through exploration in a safe environment.
Here we set out this tray of little penguins and an igloo along with a scale. They explored how the scale would move to one side or another depending on how many penguins they put inside the baskets.
How adorable are their little Penguins?! Using small sized paper bags, they glued out precut shapes to create their own little paper bag hand puppet.
Anchor charts are another great way to include visuals for encouraging learning through fun. Let the children come up with what the Penguins can do, what they have and what they are. If your children are too young to read, draw the pictures like you see here. You can also allow them to come up and draw for you.
These posters pair wonderfully with songs that teach sign language (ASL). I highly recommend downloading these mats and laminating them so you can use them over and over again.
Check out Patty Shukla's YouTube channel for fun and educational songs. Our printable posters go perfectly with her songs that teach ASL.
