Our fav for this unit were the books and the lunch! I don't think I had a unit that I loved every book! The kids' favorite must have been Tickly Octopus and It's a good thing you're not an octopus. They really are great reads!
For the lunch, here're the ingredients: Octopus: hot dog, sunflower seeds Starfish: cheese sandwich, cheerios Crab: Persimmon, raisins Seaweed, goldfish
Other things we did:
*Mural, using hands and fist for octopus
*Acting out Rainbow Fish
*Some nice worksheets
And we found a great video for Swimmy. In Mandarin! Ian LOVED it!
