Ocean Adapted Book and Vocabulary Activities
This Ocean Adapted Book and Vocabulary Activities, "There Was a Weird Diver," is a fun and silly ocean themed story that focuses on ocean themed vocabulary words, basic sequencing skills, and "Wh" questions.
This download includes 1 adapted book, 1 sequencing stick activity, 1 sorting/classification activity, 1 positional concepts activity, and 1 set of vocabulary labeling cards.
How to Use It:
In a small group, a teacher or therapist reads the story as students follow along and match a word and picture to each page. After the book is complete, the teacher or therapist can extend the activity to other areas of focus such as sequencing skills, visual discrimination/identification skills, positional concepts skills, and sorting and classification skills by using the included supplemental activities. Students working at an independent level may work through the activities in a work station or literacy center.
