A great way to include science and literacy. Have students either draw out their own sea creature or pick on already up on the board. Then have students either sound out the name of their creature or look it up. Create an underwater display that allows the students to see the diversity that lives under the sea! This could be supplemented with an underwater unit or books.
Start your year of artistically with this fun and enriching activity. Here is an art project to identify your student's desks. With this project, each student is shown how to create their name in the manner of Roméro Britto. You will also find an exercise sheet to work with patterns (called 'LES MOTIFS', free in my boutique). At the end of this document you will see other resources to add colour to your classroom, as well as other projects for the beginning of the school year.
James and the Giant Peach Word Search:A word search puzzle based on the story James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. This would make a great handout to early finishers or something fun for the kids to take home. Puzzlers must look in every direction to find the 19 words, including backwards and diagonally.
Name Writing Nature Hunt: Make your time outdoors special and craft your names with natural materials! An idea for an outing with kids or your partner if you both feel like having some innocent romantic fun.
