Seahorses & a Freebie!

I started my mini-unit on seahorses with my kindergartners today. First of all, I was thrilled to walk into the book fair and find this book...

For only $3.99, you can't go wrong! I snatched it up right away. This book is full of great seahorse facts and has bright colorful pictures. Before we started reading part of the book, we talked about our schema. I put everything on sticky notes and stuck it to this chart. We moved a few things to "Our New Learning" after reading and added some additional facts.

These little cuties are from Deanna Jump's "Ocean" unit. My students really enjoyed this project!

Here is a freebie from my Seahorses unit! It's a text to self connections sheet that you can use with Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle. Click the picture below to get it! Please leave me a comment if you use it. I really enjoy reading comments and getting feedback. :)

I hope your Monday was well. I had a surprise observation by my principal. Thankfully, it went well!

We just talked about sea horses today too! My kids loved that the dad's carry the babies :)

I know, right? They are the only animal that does that too. The seahorse is a very interesting little creature! I'm headed over to your blog to check out your giveaway right now.

I went in and bought the same book. How funny is that! I guess great minds think alike. I haven't started it yet. We did sea turtles today.
