One of our K Teachers is doing a unit on Oceans the week after Thanksgiving because she's teaching the sound /o/. Although it seems a little strange to teach about the ocean about the time we're changing into winter weather, the theme covers a huge amount of GLE's, so I'm getting kind of excited about teaching it. I have never taught an ocean unit except in summer school with mixed age kiddos (K-2). Here are a few of the things I will be using in addition to the file of ideas I already have.
Hello Ocean Lapbook
Tons of ideas - I like the ideas for There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Shell.
Sea Animal Sort
I have lots of land/air/sea animal manipulative freebies from Highlights that I can use to let the kids sort, graph, classify, etc.
