Under the Sea

This week we learned about the ocean and the many interesting creatures that live in the ocean. It was a fun week and a great way to begin to get ready for summer!

Making "Rainbow Fish"

We learned about many different sea creatures. The students loved learning interesting facts about all the different sea life. We visited many websites that taught us so much, we even saw a real webcam from an aquarium in Hawaii. We saw fish swimming around on our Promethean Board! The students are so eager to learn, maybe a future oceanographer in the room?!

Seahorse crafts!

Throughout the week the students played many ocean-themed games. Here they are playing "Go Fish." They had great fun!

Ocean Dominos

"Gone Fishing" game

Ocean Snack - Ocean Water (blue jello), fish (Swedish fish), and sand (crushed graham crackers)

Practicing our subtraction skills using "Whales" crackers

Beautiful tropical fish like the ones we learned about in the coral reefs

Octopus Handprints

"Beach in a Bag" - Students wrote a sentence about their favorite things about the beach.

Killer Whale Craft - Did you know the killer whale is a cousin to the dolphin?

We all enjoyed some wonderful books this week. We learned some really cool facts from the "Extraordinary Sea Creature" book and some neat and scary facts about sharks from Tripp's book. We enjoyed the fun books "I'm A Manatee," and "Not Norman."

Happy Birthday, Zella!

Junie B. Jones is one of our favorite book characters. Barbara Park is the author of the Junie B. Jones book series. Ms. Park's birthday was this week, so we had a Junie B. party!
