Product Description

This ocean themed resource is made up of four circle time activities (mostly sharks) that practice uppercase letter, lowercase letter, numbers, colors and shape recognition, life science skills with shark facts, and positional words.

There are print friendly versions of each.

Great to use for Ocean theme, Shark Week theme or Aquarium theme.

Setup:

These activities have minimal setup.

Decide which activity printables you plan to use, print, laminate and cut.

These activities are meant to do during circle/large group time but the all can be done in small group time as well.

Here is an overview of each activity:

Where is Clark? Song Chant Activity with Numbers & Letters

This activity students have to find Clark the shark by singing a chant and choosing a letter or number tile that he can be hidden under. The chant goes, “Where is Clark? He is a shark. He likes to swim. Can you find him?” In this activity students can learn or reinforce number recognition, uppercase, and lowercase letters. The activity can be customized to focus on one particular skill. For example, you may want to only focus on letters and numbers your students have already learned and you can do that with this activity.

What is True About Sharks

In this activity, you and your students will decide if the statements regarding sharks are true or false. There are labels for a “True” column and a “False” column. Each statement is on a shark graphic.

Sorting Sharks by Length

In this activity, you and your students will describe sharks by using vocabulary with measurable attributes like “long” and “short.” You will then go on and sort the sharks by size using positional words like “above” and “below,” practicing math and literacy skills while learning interesting facts about sharks.

I Have/Who Has?

In this activity students learn and practice colors and 2D shapes (Square, circle, oval, rectangle, triangle, heart, star, rhombus, and crescent. The advanced set includes: octagon, pentagon, hexagon, and trapezoid). Each student is given a card that states with visual instructions, “I have a red circle. Who has an orange crescent?” The student with the orange crescent will read their card and the game will continue on until all of the students have had a turn.
