My kids used to obsess with Happy Feet 1 and Happy Feet 2 that our heads are singing the song in our sleep!
But really, Happy Feet also shares many things about penguins that made me Google the types of penguins and how penguins lay their eggs.
They are kind of different from typical animals because the father is the one protecting their egg, while the mom with its friends are going out for food.

PS: Some of the penguins in this packet are wearing sunglasses, some are driving cars and some are fishing.
#3: Penguin Letter Activities
My kids aren’t so much into tracing letters with drilling style.
So I thought why don’t we do letter tracing, but with a variety of activities, because many times little kids can get motivated just because their favorite animals accompany them.
In this Penguin Letter Tracing packet; your kids will enjoy tracing with the guided arrow, tracing in the letterbox, and copying the letters, all with the accompaniment of the adorable baby Penguins.
And each pages has beginning sounds pictures that’s related to the letters; for example, the tracing letter A page has pictures of Apple, ambulance and avocado.
This Penguin letter tracing packet has are tracing uppercase letters, tracing lowercase letters and tracing uppercase & lowercase letters in one page.
Tips: I’d suggest that you start with tracing uppercase letters. This is because uppercase letters such as the letter ‘A’ or the letter ‘T’ are made up of easy straight horizontal, diagonal and vertical lines.
#4: Penguin Theme Preschool Math
Math made fun with these cute baby Penguins.
This Penguin counting packet has a lot of differentiated activities, that include math skills such as shape, cut-and-paste AB pattern, and number recognition activities.
There are also counting 10-frames to help beginners to learn counting at their own pace.
For your kids who can already count and need some practice, the counting to 10 activities are created for them, and this includes count and color, count.
Bonus : Penguin Theme Books
My kids, regardless of age; they love to hear us read to them.
Especially when we use funny voices, that impressed them even more.
To think of it, it might be similar to how I prefer to listen to audiobook rather than reading the physical book itself, because we got to hear the emotions of the author and feel the book turns alive…
