Monkey looooves penguins, it started with The Penguins of Madagascar. He thinks the show is HILARIOUS (and so do I, I love King Julian!) For the longest time he would request the show by saying “Pens?”
They’ve started a unit at school that is feeding Monkey’s love of penguins now and within the last week he has moved from “pens?” to “pen-guin.” Each time he said it this weekend the two syllables moved closer and closer together until he perfected the word. I was amazed at the progress. I guess it goes to show how very well he learns when he is MOTIVATED to do so, lol.
I hope his teacher enjoys hearing how much progress he made over the weekend as much as I did. If she’s lucky, the darn penguin egg will hatch and we’ll be able to get him to say something, ANYTHING, besides “Penguin egg crrrrack” by the end of this week.
