We wrapped up the year with an ocean theme and had such a blast these past couple weeks! All of these activities (and more) are part of my Down by the Sea Math & Literacy Centers!
We go fishing with our partner, then we add up both of our catches and record the equations.
We use cubes to measure the different sea animals.
We compare numbers and make the sharks eat the bigger numbers.
Ten Frame Race
We roll a ten frame cube, count the sea creatures, and trace the correct numeral.
Skip Counting Crabs
We sequence the crabs in the pocket chart and then cut and paste the crabs in order on sentence strips.
We use seashells to make patterns and then color our patterns on the recording sheet.
Fishing for Sight Words
We go fishing for sight words and write the words we catch.
Digging for Crabs
We dig crabs from the sand and write the ending sounds on the recording sheet.
Label the Turtle
We label a turtle and then record the words on the labeling sheet.
Beach Ball Bash
We sort beach balls by middle sounds and record the words under the correct ball.
We roll a cube and record the beginning blend or digraph on the graph.
Roll a Word
We roll a beach ball with our partners and write the words that land under our hand.
We dig objects out of a pail and write the beginning sounds on the recording sheet.
We choose a shell, segment the sounds, and use stamps to spell the words.
We sort seashells into the pails by how many syllables are in the words. Then we use do-a-dot markers to stamp the syllables.
Seashell Sight Words
We dig up seashells and then write the sight words in the sand.
Hope you enjoyed! Check out my Down by the Sea Centers for more oceans of fun!!!!
