Ocean Theme Lesson Plans and Activities
One of my favorite books to read is "Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister. It is one of the most worthwhile books to read to young children. The value of sharing and friendship is is clearly conveyed in this book. Click on the book title to read more reviews about the book. Not only is this a valuable book to read in conjunction with personal development but it certainly offers extended learning opportunities. After reading and discussing the wonderful pictures and message in the book, a predictable chart story could be used for shared reading.
