  • Child rolls die.
  • Child says number outloud, and colors the picture that matches the rolled number.
  • If that item is already colored, child passes turn if you want the game to last longer. If you desire a quicker game, when child rolls an item that is already colored, child re-rolls.

P is for Puffin

P is for Puffin

On occasion in summer during the school kids quiet time, we watch Puffin Rock. This led to interest in Puffins, and it was the only artic creature that recieved a unanimous vote to learn about. It turns out that Pufrins are pretty cool, their eyes show quite an expression. Penguins are taught in schools here, so I was thrilled to investigate Puffins.

Here are the preschool books we found at our library which my preschoolers found interesting, that are ONLY about puffins, but you can use ANY animal book that includes Puffins.

The Library had these books below also, and while I love Gail Gibbons, they totally were not interesting for the preschoolers. My preschoolers weren’t totally excited about puffins like other animals. They are naturally inclined towards domestic, familiar animals, or familiar fun animals such as monkeys. I added interest by adding “fly like a puffin” or “dig like a puffin” during theme time. The funnies thing is to make puffin noises, one of the sounds they make are a bit like cows!😂

Other books about only Puffins
There are several wonderful Puffin Cams and this clip shows a Puffling hatching! I find the parent’s eyes quite expressive, and it also shows the HABITAT, a burrow. The burrow knowledge helped the children understand other animals who use burrows under the snow during winter.

Here is the free printable P is for Puffin template we used
