Shark Week Blog Hop ... School of Sharks Freebie!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Are you ready for some adventurous deep sea diving into the world of SHARKS?

All teachers know that kids learn more when they’re excited and engaged. Today a team of bloggers comes together to help your students take a BITE out of learning with a theme your students are sure to love!


My Shark Week freebie is based on an old-verging-on-ancient freebie of mine that's been given a Total Makeover - new graphics from Dandy Doodles, and a brand new board game, too! Designed for first and second grade, this set will give your students lots of practice with  "not" contractions, like wasn't {... that a HUGE shark?}, doesn't {... make me want to go for a swim!}, and isn't {... it crazy how much kids love sharks?}.

Whether they're playing matching and memory games with the sixteen pairs of word cards or using the cards to play "A School of Sharks!", your kiddos will want MORE of the shark theme... and more practice = more learning!

            fintastic freebie

School of Sharks is a sample from Oceans of Fun Literacy and Math, a set of 16 cross-curricular activities designed to support your science teaching about the ocean. These activities would also be great to use in a beach-themed summer school or for a MARE week. I hope you'll stop by my TpT store for a closer look at this and my other resources ... more than 300 of them!

Sorry, the links in this blog hop are closed!

Every blog in the Shark Week Blog Hop features a jawesome freebie for you and your students- but hurry! Shark Week only lasts until Sunday, July 12  : )

So be brave, dive deep, and keep swimming, to collect more Shark Week freebies! Next stop?
