a.      Welcome Song:  Welcome to the Library (To “London Bridge is Falling Down.”)
Welcome to the library, library, library.
Welcome to the library, please come inside and read.
We’re glad to have you here today, here today, here today.
We’re glad to have you here today, today’s a special day.

b.       Welcome Fingerplay & Song: Rock, Scissors, Paper (To tune of Frere Jacques)
Rock scissors paper, rock scissors paper, one two three play with me
Left hand paper, right hand paper, it’s a butterfly

Left hand rock, right hand scissors, it s a snail
Repeat refrain
Right hand rock, left hand paper, it’s a helicopter

c. Set Library Behavioral Expectations: (reinforce / commend examples)
c.       MYSTERY BAG:  Stuffed Penguin

d.  Word of the Week:  (Forms a cornerstone of the lesson, aids in understanding and connecting text themes)
i.                    English: Penguin – fairness is when things are equal, and people are playing by the rules  Say it, syllabicate it, spell it in the air.
ii.                  Spanish: pingüino (pin GWEE noh)
iii.                ASL (American Sign Language.)  Sign language is a real language where people use their hands to communicate.  Hold your hands near your hips and stick them out like penguin feet.  Now “waddle” by moving your hands up and down.  http://www.signingsavvy.com/sign/PENGUIN/2077/1

f.         Intent & Agenda:  Today we are going to learn about penguins, those birds that live in the coldest part of the world, the South pole.  (Show on globe.)

2. STORY #1: Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester, Houghton Mifflin, 1987.)
a.  Pre-reading:  Based on cover, what will story be about?

b.  READ:

c.        Reflection:  Picture walk through the story a second time, examining why the hunters chose to leave the penguins alone!

d.       Activity: Fingerplay “In the Land of Ice and Snow.
  In the land of ice and snow                            (shiver and say “brrr!” )
  Where the freezing, cold winds blow             (blow)
  Lives a bird who’s quite a sight                    (make circles w/ fingers and put to eyes like binoculars) 
  With his suit of black and white.                  (run hands along side of body, then tummy)
  He can swim, but he can’t fly.                      (swim and shake head “yes”, fly and shake head “no”)
 The penguin is a funny guy!

e.       Activity 2:  Action Song “ Did you Ever See A Penguin?”
Did you ever see a penguin, a penguin, a penguin?
Did you ever see a penguin waddle this way and that?
Waddle this way and that way, waddle this way and that way
Did you ever see a penguin waddle this way and that?

 Penguin JOKES

Who's the penguin's favorite Aunt?
Why do penguins carry fish in their beaks?
(Because they don't have any pockets!)
What's black and white, black and white, and black and white?
(A penguin rolling down a hill!)
Which side of a penguin has the most feathers?
(The outside!)
What's black, white and red all over?
(A penguin with a sunburn!) 

3.  POEM
I know a bird
That cannot fly:
Penguin is its name.
It cannot fly,
But it can swim
With speed that wins it fame!
I know a bird
That lives on ice
And waddles by the sea.
It looks so cute
In its black-and-white suit,
As handsome as can be!
by Meish Goldish, 101 Science Poems & Songs for Young Learners, Instructor Books

4.  Resource 2: PebbleGo Animals: Penguins   (accessed from databases January 21, 2014)
            Pre-reading: 4 types of penguins presented.  We’ll pick one.  Look at headings to show what to expect when reading.
Read:  Use vocabulary of technology, like “cursor” “webpage” “text” “graphics.”  Take time to look at definitions of unknown words and answer questions.
Reflection:  What will we do on MLK Day to make the world a more loving, kind, peaceful place (Ideas- smiling, vowing not to fight with siblings, helping parents, saying thank you and please all day, holding doors open for people, calling a loved one who lives far away, cleaning up trash, donating used goods to needy…)
