Beach Day

Every month we have a theme, and for March it was Ocean.  During the month of March we do a lot of lessons and activities in all subjects that are ocean based.  We do a lot with ocean animals and ocean life. At the end of the month, we have "Beach Day."  On this special day the kids get to travel to all of the Kindergarten classrooms and do a different ocean themed learning activity in each room.  They love this!  Its' great because they are doing fun themed activities that correlate with our state standards, and they also get to be in different classrooms and be with different teachers.

These are some of the things my students created for our Ocean unit...

In the middle and on the right, are our beautiful seashells.  When coloring our seashells we used ABC patterns!  We also wrote a beach poem- Come to the beach, come to play in the sun, come to splash in the water, come to have fun!

On the left is our Rainbow Fish.  I absolutely love the book and do a lesson with it every year doing our ocean unit.  The kids colored their rainbow fish using a ABCD pattern.  I cut out sparkly scales and gave each student two.  They got to keep one, but pick someone in the classroom room to share the other with.  Then, they got to glue their sparkly scale on their fish.
We also made sea turtles and crabs.  I let the kids choose which they wanted to do.

On the left is a picture of our jellyfish that we made.  We used paper bowls, construction paper, tissue paper, and ribbon.

I love the name of your blog. My blog is all about hearts. I even have on my tagline that before we reach their heads we have to touch their hearts. We have helpful hearts in our classroom that we use to fill our bucket! =)
