My child loves animals, any type of animal for that matter. Whenever I have an opportunity to incorporate a lesson in Spanish on something that he loves, I literally jump on it! What better way to teach your child new vocabulary words on a subject that your child loves, and in a language that he’s learning? Open Wide the World creates wonderful units for dual language learners, and I’ll also be sharing with you Spanish children’s book about penguins.

Before we say good-bye to Winter (and anything associated with that season including penguins, you know cold/penguins) I’ll be sharing with you my thoughts on the customizable penguin craftivity that I had the opportunity to review with my child, and his Spanish playgroup.
Note to self:  The craftivity requires a 12”x 18” black construction paper for the outer penguin folder. Unfortunately, I had not “fully” read the instructions, and went on to start the lesson with three eager kids with standard size black construction paper. I must read all of the instructions before I laid out all the fun things to do with the kiddos! The kids were so excited that I didn’t want to postpone our penguin lesson so we made them with the construction paper that we had.   

This wonderful Spanish Los Pingüinos Penguins Craftivity Booklet includes a flip book, covering the basic penguin habitat, glossary words, penguin chart with 17 species, a cut-and-paste of the life cycle of the penguin, labeling of the parts of a penguin, and a recording sheet, open-ended writing sheet, and more awesome fun stuff! You can see the details of the packet here.

This was a very fun unit to do with the kids, and I highly recommend it! (Just make sure to read all of the instructions hahaha!)

Don’t forget to check-out these great Spanish finds for your kiddos.



Thank you Open Wide the World for allowing me to review your penguin unit.
