Activity Name: Sea Creature Hunt

Domain Focus(main content area): Language

1. Goals/Learning Objectives: What are the desired outcomes for the children?
Shows progress in understanding and following simple and multi-step directions.
Develops growing understanding of the different functions of forms of print.
Demonstrates increasing comfort in talking with and accepting guidance and directions
from a range of familiar adults.


2. Materials Needed:
Toy sea creatures (10)
Cards with simple directions to find sea creatures



3. Procedures:
a. Introduction-Show them some of the toy sea creatures that were not hidden and
ask them if they know what they are.
b. Main activity-The teacher will hide ten sea creatures around the room ahead of
time that correspond with the simple directions written to find them. Have
students draw a direction card one at a time. Assist the student in reading the
direction for them to follow. Once they have found the sea creature go on to the
next student.
c. Closure-Ask them what their favorite sea creature was that was found.
d. Transition-After the students finish cleaning up have them get their name tag
and choose a center to play in.


4. Suggestions for Simplification/Extension:
To simplify this activity you could put pictures on the direction cards. To extend this activity you
could have more than one direction on a card.


5. Assessment: What method will you use to evaluate the objectives and child learning?
Shows progress in understanding and following simple and multi-step directions-
observe to see if the students were able to follow the directions given on the card.
Develops growing understanding of the different functions of forms of print-Ask
students if they can recognize certain letters written on the cards.
Demonstrates increasing comfort in talking with and accepting guidance and
directions from a range of familiar adults-observe to see if students accept your
guidance and directions.

Activity Name: Ocean Animal Movements

Domain Focus(main content area): Physical

1. Goals/Learning Objectives: What are the desired outcomes for the children?
Shows progress in understanding and following simple and multiple-step directions.
Demonstrates understanding of print concepts.
Demonstrates basic locomotor skills.


2. Materials Needed:
Ocean animal movements cards (10)

3. Procedures:
a. Introduction-Have the students form a large circle with about an arms length
between each student. Read through each card and model the action for the
students.
b. Main activity-Start out by having the students go through all of the movement
cards together. The teacher will demonstrate as the students do the actions.
Then lay out the cards on the floor and have each student do the actions by
referring to the cards color or the first letter of the ocean animal word on the
card. For example, go to the card that is blue and do the action on it or go to the
card that starts with a C and do the action on it. (The teacher will assist the
students in reading the actions on the cards.)
c. Closure-Ask the students which was their favorite action card to do.
d. Transition-Have them get their names tags and pick a center they would like to
play in.


4. Suggestions for Simplification/Extension:
To simplify this activity you could give them oral directions and leave out the written ones. To
extend this activity you could ask the students to make up other actions for ocean animals that
werent used in the activity.


5. Assessment: What method will you use to evaluate the objectives and child learning?
Shows progress in understanding and following simple and multiple-step directions-
Observe to see if they students were able to follow the directions on the cards and the
oral directions given.
Demonstrates understanding of print concepts-Were the students able to identify the
beginning letters of the ocean animals when asked to find them?
Demonstrates basic locomotor skills-Observe the students use of locomotor skills when
doing the actions on the cards.

Activity Name: ABC 123

Domain Focus(main content area): Cognitive

1. Goals/Learning Objectives: What are the desired outcomes for the children?
Develops increasing abilities to give and take in interactions; to take turns in games and
using materials.
Demonstrates understanding of print concepts.
Demonstrates increasing abilities to coordinate movements in throwing and catching.

2. Materials Needed:
Beach ball with letters and numbers written on it


3. Procedures:

length of space. The teachers will model throwing the ball to each other and
identify the letter/number their right hand lands on.
b. Main activity-Have students take turns throwing the ball to one another. Make
sure they call out the name of the person they will be throwing it to so they will
be ready. Once the student has caught the ball have them identify the

sure everyone gets a turn in the circle.
c. Closure-Ask the students if it was hard for them to catch the ball.
d. Transition-Have students get their name tags and choose a center.


4. Suggestions for Simplification/Extension:
To simplify this activity put less letters/numbers on the ball to identify. To extend this activity
add things such as colors or shapes.


5. Assessment: What method will you use to evaluate the objectives and child learning?
Develops increasing abilities to give and take in interactions; to take turns in games and
using materials-observe to see if the students are able to share and take turns with each
other.
Demonstrates understanding of print concepts-listen to see if they are able to identify
the letters/numbers.
Demonstrates increasing abilities to coordinate movements in throwing and catching-
were the students able to catch the ball and throw it?
