PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This themed correlation of activities (Over 55 Pages) is intended to assist primary educatorsin extending and integrating student learning within current curriculum and instructional practice. We have chosen a format that addresses a wide variety of learning styles and approaches. All of the activities included in this themed packet are designed to meet current educational standards in an exciting and innovative manner. We have chosen our favorite classroom activities all of which are based upon quality children’s literature within a “fish” theme.

/Rhymes, Chants & Songs

Student Books – Individual student books are a wonderful way to promote independence and fluency in reading.

1. Shape Book –Pre-K

2. Size Book—Pre-K

3. Subtraction Book—K

4. Fish Facts—1st or 2nd

Class Book - Class books are commonly used to extend a favorite poem or piece of literature and to encourage students to synthesize concepts of print.

Word Play – This activity is to be used in a classroom center or for a choosing activity.

Writing – Writing opportunities allow students to extend the learning process while enhancing comprehension. The use of writing connections is paramount to successful student achievement. A writing prompt and a writing page have beenprovided for use in centers, writer’s workshop, journals, and guided writing.

Math – A math mat and pattern cards are provided to explore the principles of numeration, algebra and mathematical functions. We have also provided a rainbow colored goldfish graphing activity and pattern.

Science – This is an important curricular component that emphasizes prediction, exploration, observation, data analysis, synthesis, and discovery. We have listed several activities for you to consider in the area of social sciences.

Art – Art projects provide additional opportunity to extend literature and learning by using various media and accessing student creativity. We have provided the patterns and activities for a fish themed hat, paper plate fish, and a print decorated fish.

Recipes – Hands on learning is an essential element to any curriculum and cooking in the classroom is a perfect way to enhance scientific inquiry, math, and literacy development. We have carefully chosen three recipes that compliment this unit of study. The recipes included are Fish Sandwiches, Graham Cracker Aquariums, and Jell-o ponds.

Home Connection – A take home activity has been included to encourage families to share in the learning experience. We have provided a book report and a research project that have been designed to be completed either at home or at school.

Behavior Management – Certificates of achievement and behavioral incentives have been provided to thematically encourage children. We hope you have fun implementing this fish unit into your current curriculum and practice.

The activities are the creation of Tracy Jarboe and Stefani Sadler. All the reproducibles feature the adorable artwork of Stefani Sadler!
