Shark Activities for Tots and Preschoolers with Free Printables

My kiddos are going crazy for sharks these days.  Discovery Channel's Shark Week seems to do that to them.  What's been fun this year, is that the desire to learn more about sharks has lasted all Summer and into the Fall.  

Today, I'm sharing Sunshine's Shark Activities for Tots and Preschoolers with Free Printables.  She always wants to do what her siblings are doing.  Since their activities are too difficult, we decided to make more age appropriate ones for her.  She is loving them all!


Here's what's on her shelves!

Language


Shark Themed Prewriting Sand Tray

Sunshine continues to work on prewriting activities, using a sand tray.  Right now we're using blue sand to resemble water.  The prewriting tasks resemble shark fins or waves in the ocean.

Shark Themed Nomenclature Cards

Nomenclature cards are great for children when trying to develop vocabulary and letter recognition.  Sunshine uses the control cards provided to help her match up picture and word cards.  She really enjoys these cards and is using new words in conversation on a regular basis.  Yay!

Shark First Letter Sounds

This activity is recommended after introducing the shark themed nomenclature cards.  Sunshine uses the control cards provided (if needed) to determine the first letter sound of each shark vocabulary word.  She places a glass bead on the correct answer.  

Note:  Not all cards in the printable are being used.

Sunshine is learning to identify greater than, less than, and equal signs.  We're having loads of fun explaining that sharks open their mouths to the bigger bite.  She uses glass beads to mark her answer on each card.
