What a great way for a Math Centre in Kindergarten and beginning of grade one! Paint a file folder ocean blue, and then on the outside place an envelope with eyes and get your students to place the correct number of eyes (with the help of velcro) on to the octopus' arms!
Station (diverse learners) : This would be great for vocabulary. The students can sign the word and describe what it means. This also works on fine motor skills for students who are diverse and can also be good practice for all learners.
