Oceans of Fun!!

So, I went ahead and did it! I decided to do two more centers for the rest of the year, because I want to keep them engaged even though they have gone bonkers. I'll share one center with you today.

This is what I call blends match up, which is available in my TPT store. In this center, they have to find the real words, and record their answers. One of my children made the connection to nonsense words. He stated that even if you didn't match a real word, you could still read it. I was like 'yeah!'. It also allows them extra practice with blends.

I don't know where hast came from in the picture below, this is the same kid that made the connection. Ha!

We also began our Oceans unit this week. We read "Somewhere in the Ocean" by Jennifer Ward, and then we made a bubble map of the different types of animals that reside in the ocean.

Today we read "In the Deep Blue Sea", which can be found in Deanna Jump's Oceans unit. We then came up with a list of adjectives, nouns and verbs to complete our class book.
