Okay, so this has nothing to do with the actual pin, but it made me think of an "Ocean Theme" behavior management board idea. Bubbles above each fish...students "lose a bubble" and place in the bucket if misbehaving..everyone starts with 3 or 4 each morning Counted Activities, Ocean Theme, Ocean Preschool Ideas, Counted Fish, Math Ideas, Teaching Ideas, Bubbles Counted, Counted Games, Kid

Fish in the Sea Counting Game-Math Center idea. I would do numbers 10-21 and start with simple counting/recognition; eventually turn it to an adding and/or subtraction game with dice. Could also do single dice and grab bag element where kids draw sea animal cards that say things like "add one" or "double number", etc.
This is a math activity with gross motor, and some writing on a vertical surface which is great for beginning writers because it forces the correct wrist position and strengthens the correct muscles in the hand and arm.
