The summer slide sucks sometimes. One fun way to keep kids learning is this ocean themed word family writing activity. These are a fun way to build words, writing sentences, and coloring all wrapped up into one activity. Plus ocean activities are a favorite for us during the summer.
My girls have loved the themed writing sets. There are several of this series now on the site: flower, beach, apples, Christmas tree and snowman. This allows you to have fun with your writing all year.
In this series that are mainly two different pages: a word family name page and writing a sentence page. This ocean themed printable allows your child to make the words their themed wall cards for the season that you are in. For us that is summer!
My girls love that they get to write their own words on the page. This allows them to be creative. I give them the wall cards to help when they are younger. You could also give them alphabet stamps to help with younger kids. You can see an example of the using the stamps here.
After they write the words, they get to color the page. This makes the page loads of fun for them. It also makes something fun for them to work on their words.
Then you can do several writing pages if you want. We normally pick one word to write about. I let them pick the word because they can be more creative with a word of their choice.
