Product Description

This resource is made up of three ocean themed math activities to practice number recognition (1-20), counting (1-20), creating patterns (AB, ABC, AAB, ABB), sorting using descriptive math language and fine motor skills practice, too.

There are print friendly versions of each.

Great to use for Ocean Theme, or Aquarium Theme.

Setup:

Decide which activity printables you plan to use. Each activity has a set of target standards. Review those standards and decide which ones will be part of your instructional goal(s). Print, laminate, and cut where necessary.

These activities can be done independently or during small group time.

Here is an overview of each activity:

Create Patterns Using Ocean Animals in an Aquarium - This math activity is used to practice extending, duplicating, and creating simple patterns. There are 5 patterns: AB, ABC, AABB, AAB, and ABB. Each pattern has 3 practice aquarium mats with ocean animals. There is also a blank aquarium mat for students to create their own pattern. There are color and print friendly versions of each.

Counting Sea Turtles - This math activity can be used to practice counting up to 20, as well as number recognition. There are a few different versions: mats with one ten frame (for numbers 1-10), mats with two ten frames (for numbers 1-20), and mats with no ten frames. Print friendly versions are included too.

Cutting & Sorting Fish by Size - This math activity can be used to practice fine motor skills, describing objects using measurable attributes (small/big), and comparing objects using length. A print friendly version is included.

Skills/Standards practiced:

These activities are designed to align with the Preschool Foundational and Kindergarten Readiness Standards used in my state, which are:

• OA.1.1 I can explore adding and taking away with concrete objects and patterns.
• OA.1.6 I can duplicate, extend, and create simple patterns.
• L.5b I can compare commonalities and differences by identifying opposites using descriptive words (e.g. big/little, happy/sad).
• G.1.2 I can correctly name shapes.
• CA.1.3b I can recognize and name colors.
• CC.1.1 I can begin to count to 20 by ones.
• CC.1.3 I can understand numbers come before or after one another in a sequence 1-10.
• CC.2.4 I can represent a group of objects with the correct number.
• CC.2.4abc I can use one-to-one correspondence when counting objects. I can develop the ability to respond to the question “how many” after counting the objects in a set. I can understand that each number name in sequence 0–10 means one more.
• CC.2.5 I can count as many as 10 objects arranged in a line.
• CC.3.7 I can associate quantities with written numerals 1–10.
• SE/SS.2.5b I can describe [my own] feelings.
• MD.1.1 I can describe objects using vocabulary specific to measurable attributes (e.g., length [long/short], weight [heavy/light], size [big/small], and distance [near/far]).
• MD.1.2 I can compare objects using measurable attributes (e.g., length [longer/shorter], weight [heavier/lighter], and size [bigger/smaller]).
