A Day at the Beach

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The best thing about books is their ability to transport you to a new place!  Today, we explored the beach...

Beach Day by Karen Roosa
Rhyming text describes a perfect day at the beach, complete with sandy knees, deviled eggs, and a castle with a moat.

"Five Little Ocean Friends" Action Rhyme:
Five little ocean friends, on the ocean floor
The starfish walks away, and now there are four
Four little ocean friends living in the sea,
The crab slides away, and now there are three
Three little ocean friends, looking for a clue
"Glub, glub," says the lobster; now there are are two
Two little ocean friends, not having too much fun
The seahorse swims away, and now there is one
One little octopus, sad and all alone
Back swims the starfish, back swims the crab,
Back swims the lobster, back swims the seahorse
And they played in the seafoam, safe in their home!

What If? by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
What if a boy found a beach ball and kicked it into the ocean? What if two seals found it and began to play? What if a third seal appeared on the beach looking for a friend? Enjoy this visit to the beach and the chance to guess what happens when different choices are made.
"The Waves in the Sea" Action Song:
Sung to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus"
The waves in the sea go up and down, up and down, up and down
The waves in the sea go up and down, all the day long
The shark in the sea goes snap, snap, snap...
The fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish...
Fun Dog, Sun Dog by Deborah Heiligman
Although Tinka the dog can be described in many ways, she is always the right kind of canine for her owner.
Check out the jellyfish we created at craft time!
I named mine G-Whiz the Jellyfish.
