Read Aloud Books for May
We sure love studying the ocean in May. The book, Hello Ocean by Pam Munoz Ryan i(affiliate link) is a great book to weave into your studies. The language is rich and perfect for talking about figurative language and using our five senses!
For this particular Engaging Readers unit, we DID add vocabulary words so we could sort them my the five senses.
Students then took their turn at using figurative language in their own writing.
We also love the book Surprising Sharks by Nicola Davies. You can read about how we used this book in the following blog post: Shark Activities for Kindergarten and First Grade (FREE file Included in this post
We also studied ocean animals in this blog post: Ocean Week Lesson Plans (AKA Shark Week)… there is also a free file in there for you too!
