Short i week was fish-filled fun!
I really did a lot with Pout Pout Fish. He's so cute, and the kids really like him.
These are the books that I really focused on... during our Ocean Week at the end of the year, I bring out even more fish/ocean books.
We started off with some summary planning.
Can we just take a moment and admire that Mr. Fish up there on that anchor chart?? ha!!
Then the kids took the plan and turned it into sentences.... again, this is only our 2nd time doing this, so we really worked together on it.
On the back, they glued their drawing of Pout Pout fish. I hung them in the window, so the drawings are showing out of the window, and the writing is facing in the classroom.
Last year, they hung on the board in my room.
The directed drawing comes from Deanna's Pout Pout Fish pack.
Then we did the cute little craft to hang with the character change. You can grab this for FREE in First Grade Blue Skies' store HERE.
The character change paper comes from Deaana's pack.
After reading Pout Pout Fish Goes to School, they sequenced the story.
You can find the activity in THIS pack.
Our theme snack for Fish Week was so yum!
each kid will need:
1 whole Graham Cracker sleeve
Cream Cheese (dyed blue)
I gave them more than a few goldfish and told them they could put a few, or do whatever they wanted...some made a School of Fish, since we read Pout Pout Fish Goes to School...lol. So cheeky.
