I'm back! Three days in a row! Woohoooooo!
Today the kiddies embarked on a beach adventure and took part in literacy centers. We finally got to experience my Let's Go to the Beach literacy pack! I love getting feedback about how much fun your kiddies are having with this unit and now I can also say that my munchkins are enjoying these activities too! If you haven't already checked it out stop by my TPT store and take a look at my
Let's Go to the Beach Unit. It's great for the end of the year, summer programs and even a cute welcome back at the beginning of the school year!
Alongside the literacy activities included in the package, I added 2 extra centers. I chose some beach themed books for the students to listen to over at our listening center. If you don't have many books on tape or cd, you can always record yourself reading the story books.
The kiddies get a real kick out of that!
I also added an art component. As I've mentioned in previous posts, we are working on a reader's theater production of The Sandcastle Contest by Robert Munsch, so we decided to make sandcastles as part of our "set design." As usual, I gave the kiddies some templates on card stock and let them trace the pieces on various "sand colored" construction paper. I think they turned out great!
Can't wait to put them up!
Grab yourself a free copy of the sandcastle template right over here!
Until next time...
