Take care,


Under the Sea

Ok, I admit it. I’ve been on an ocean theme kick lately, guess I’m trying to hold on to the last bit of summer before school starts:)

Here are some ocean themed Freebies my K team or I created, enjoy!

I used this flow map activity with my students at the end of last year when we watched Finding Nemo. We were working on comprehension skills;)

These mini-books were created as an extension activity for the book, In the Big Blue Sea by Chyng Feng Sun. It is part of the HM Reading program for theme 2, which focuses on color words. You do not have to read the book in order to use these mini-books, they are for practicing color words. But if you can find the book, the kids will have a lot of fun with it. There are three levels for differentiated groups.

In the Big Blue Sea -Low

In the Big Blue Sea -Middle

In the Big Blue Sea -High

Here’s a sentence practice activity:

Ladybug, Ladybug

Ladybug, Ladybug

Ladybug!  Ladybug!
Fly away home.
Your house is on fire.
And your children all gone.

All except one,
And that’s little Ann,
For she crept under
The frying pan.

Spring is a wonderful time of year for a study of insects. I have to admit that creepy crawlies are not my favorite thing but in the interest of science education, I endure…lol  Ladybugs are a favorite with my students, and they are a very helpful insect! Here are a few resources I created with a ladybug theme, and some additional links and resources as well.
