Oceans of Fun! FREE Graphic Organizers

We are finishing our Oceans unit this week and I thought I would pass on what we have been doing.  This includes two non-fiction graphic organizers, plus some directed drawing... FREE! Just click on the picture to go to Google Docs.

Here are some photos of our work in action!

First we read a few books about sharks and dolphins.  We co-created the large Venn diagram.

The students complete their own version.

Here a sample of our non-fiction writing about clown fish (my class was facinated with clown fish... Thank you Nemo!)  I love this graphic organizer! I am sad that I forgot my good camera. 

I also just loaded my Oceans Read, Trace, Glue and Draw to my TpT Store

Here some other beach/ocean themed items I have on sale.  Click on the image to hop over to my store.

Will you hate me if I tell you we only have 4 more days of school?


  1. Just wanted to say how much I LOVE your blog and everything you create! I purchased so many of your products recently and my students LOVE them!! Thanks for all you do!
