Spring Cleaning: OCEANS OF FUN

My spring cleaning has been very productive so far!  This packet has gone from 33 pages to 60 pages of ocean packed fun.   Plus, I have aligned it with 1st and 2nd grade Common Core standards. Here are a few of the lessons I added:

5 picture writing prompts which could be used for a journal writing lesson or a writing center:

Added this science and tech connection assignment.  Student choose an ocean creature and research facts about the creature.

I also added connection worksheets that are ocean-themed.  Here is the text-to-world one that you may download for FREE!

I added an "Under the Sea" book center which includes:  center sign, non-fiction response sheet, fiction sheet, center directions, and book list which includes title, author, reading level, and fiction/non-fiction.  Here are a few pictures from the center:

I added 3 acrostic poems and 1 sample poem.

There are a few more changes, too.  If you have already purchased this packet, go to your TPT download folder and download it again.  You can get the new and improved version packet for FREE.  To visit my TPT store, click below:
