Now that summer is here(I know, where did the time go?) we chose a Beach Day fun theme and so I created  a literacy pack to go with our theme.  Click here to take a peek!

Beach Vocabulary!
Beach Vocabulary! I added 12 vocab cards to help us get started.  We laminated the beach vocabulary cards so we could trace the words with dry erase markers, erase, and trace again!  You could also use them to go with your Summer units!

Beach Booklet!

Beach Booklet! This Beach booklet now features black and white version half pages saving you ink and paper!  Over the past week we have had a day at the beach filling out, coloring, cutting/pasting, and putting together our beach booklet

Long and Short E Sounds!

Speaking of the beach, I created this word sort so we could practice our short and long e vowel sounds!

Ocean in a bottle!

Ocean in a bottle! Since we weren't able to go to the ocean, we decided to bring it to us!

Materials Used:
1 clear plastic 2 liter bottle
1 bottle of baby oil
blue food coloring

First, we filled the bottle almost 3/4 full of water.  Next, we added 3 or 4 drops of food coloring.  Then, we poured in the entire bottle of baby oil.  Last, we secured the lid with some glue and explored.
