Kindergarten Lesson Plans Week 3 featuring ideas for Clark the Shark Reading, writing, math, and center activities too.
Clark the Shark Close Read
Clark the Shark is a great book to introduce to your students early in the year. Clark is big and rough and he has a hard time with his friends.
Can you think of a really enthusiastic student who might benefit from this gentle reminders?
In the end, Clark learns how to be gentle with his friends.
Retelling Clark the Shark
Here are the retell cards for Clark the Shark. These are part of our Engaging Readers units and really help students pay attention to the text details.
You can find these retelling cards (plus 5 other book units) by clicking HERE.
Clark the Shark Craft
Students complete the Clark the Shark craft and then on the back, we added our sentence study. In sentence study, we look for various print concepts. We also do a little grammar work. The directions for this craft are also included in our Engaging Readers Comprehension units and you can find it by clicking HERE.
Clark the Shark Centers
We have also created math and literacy centers to go along with the book. There are two levels of each of these activities.

Other Center Activities
These math counting cards give students to practice counting in a concrete way. First students trace the number with their finger, then they add dough to the ten frame to match that number.
