ESY....Week 4...One more to go!

Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!
Began the week with this cute octopus!
This guy was in a book I found in my cabinet...yes you heard right!
Remember in the old days....we used those to have access to lesson ideas?
Anyway, the book is from
Teacher Created Materials,
Thematic unit: Sea Animals
Early Childhood
We read
( this book has beautiful artwork, vivid colors and rhymes)

 and made one of these maps to see how many animals we could remember from the book! They were pretty excited about it, I am wishing we had done this type of activity more this summer.

Next, they completed and drew pictures of sea life from the map. The worksheet is from the amazing Sea life theme book from
Teacher Created Materials

This is a freebie from

We read
and made...
I have made many versions of a rainbow fish over the years, and I think this is my favorite!
In the past, I have made it too complicated and it takes quite a lot of time. This guy was quick and the students could make him as colorful as they wanted with markers. Of course, the
is the best part!
(another paper plate creation is born!)
The kids were so excited to take theirs home, I didn't get pictures, this is my demo model.
Fireweed....inverted colors!
just some fun....
