Oceans in December

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

Emergent Readers

Tons of ideas - I like the ideas for There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Shell.

Shark Tangram

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.

What are your favorite ocean activities?

  1. I’m putting together a list of the Top 100 Classroom Blogs and I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions so I could include more information in my article. Please e-mail me at and include the title of your blog in the e-mail, thanks!
