We read many fiction and non-fiction ocean and fish books.
The inspiration for this thinking map and the graph above was from one of Kim Jordano's sessions at the saw at the I Teach K conference in Vegas.
(I made the describing map blank and just put the cards on velcro so that I could use it for other things!)
This project was super fun – just a simple crayon resist – we used oil pastels instead of crayons though. I love how the colors turned out so bright an vivid!
These centers are from Lakeshore Learning – it is a three in one center kit. I won it at the National Kindergarten Conference this summer!
I put these masks (I have a few more) in the dramatic play center. They are so simple, but the kids think they are really fun! I’m can’t remember where I found them though!
