Ocean Fun Unit! - Win a FREE Copy!

A little more than halfway through a recent flight some serious boredom set in. I wasn't interested in paying for inflight wi-fi more than half way through so I thought, what can I make a unit on, that I already have clip art for?

A while back someone inquired about me making an ocean themed unit. I don't remember who that someone was, BUT I have finally made one!

I'm pretty excited about this unit. I think there are a lot of fun games! Here is what is included in the unit:

Alphabet Match: Match the capital crabs to the lowercase starfish.(Pgs. 3-16)

I Have, Who Has: An I have, Who has game using pictures. The child "reads" the picture instead of a word. (Pgs. 17- 19)

Roll and Color: Print out the cards and insert them into a photo cube. Supply students with recording sheet to record what they roll. (Pgs. 20-22)

Vocabulary Cards: Vocabulary cards to use to introduce the unit to your students. (Pgs.23- 27)

Find the Letter 'Oo': Use dot paint or a bingo marker and have students find only the circles with the letter 'O' or 'o' in them. When they find one, they mark the circle.(Pg.28)

Number Cards: Students count the objects on the card and then they find the number that matches. Put a clothespin on the number that is correct. Recording sheet included. (Pgs. 29- 35)

Drop, Count & Move Game: Use a small manipulative as a game marker for each player. (up to 2) Drop the game pieces from a cup. Count how many pictures land face up. Move your manipulative that many places on the game board. (Pgs. 36-37)

Read, Trace, & Write: Laminate these cards. Students use them with dry erase markers to practice writing the words/letters. (Pgs. 38-45)

Action Cards: Students pick a card and everyone does the action that is on the card. (Pgs. 46- 48)

If you are interested in purchasing this unit, you can purchase it from either TpT or TN.

Leave me a comment with your favorite activity in this unit, or favorite activity to find in a unit, and I will pick a random winner to get a free copy! You must leave your comment by 11pm TONIGHT (Tuesday, April 10)

Everything sounds amazing and we are starting our ocean unit next week! This would fit in perfectly. My favorite activity is the "Number Cards." My friends need all the help they can get with counting sets and matching numbers. Thanks for the chance to win!

Adorable unit! I think the drop, count and move game is such a great idea - my kids would get a kick out of it, and it's something they could all be successful at while still practicing their counting skills :)


megandw said...

I love any cute activity where my kiddos can be successful while independent! I think the read, trace, write cards would be great!

Lori Rosenberg said...

Looks like a fun activity for our students. Great clip art, too! I like all of the activities, but if I had to choose one, I guess I'd say the vocabulary cards. I always have vocabulary cards out for the children to help them with their writing.
