Ocean Unit---free collection of materials

  Things are winding down at my school in preparation for our annual test-taking ritual.  This year---a little less frenzy, since scores won't be available for everyone until October.  This late date will eliminate retests (if a kid didn't pass in the past years, he or she had the joy of taking it again).  This year, there's a reprieve from that for both the kids and for the adults who have to administer the tests.  I'm happy!

For those of you who need materials centered around the beach or ocean theme, I've been collecting them over the years.  During summer ESY (extended school year), we typically celebrate the beach and ocean, so I have several adapted books and crafts in my tool chest.  Here they are!  All free as usual.

  1. Thank you so much!! I love your work!

  2. I have 3 weeks of school left and there was a water main break at my school rendering in unusable for the remainder of the year. My students and staff at my school have been split between 4 schools in the district and I have become a traveling therapist for the next 3 weeks. Of the very few materials I packed up to bring with me were about 5 of your printable books I had in my file cabinet. I will add some of these books for something new and I am set for this short-term adventure!

    1. This sounds like a crazy end to the school year, and it sounds like you have just the right upbeat outlook to make things work! Thank you for you nice words about the books. They do come in handy!
