The fresh air, the warm breeze and the feel of sand on your toes make the ocean a wonderful place to be. For those who aren’t able to get the ocean, we can still have fun learning about the ocean through books and documentaries.

While many believe cursive writing is dead, some homeschoolers being by teaching cursive to their kids before manuscript letters, we like to transition to cursive writing in third grade. Because I have a reluctant writer who feels like his hand may fall off if he writes more than two sentences I’m starting in the 4th grade with my son.
I really need to work on penmanship with him and my oldest so they’re both going through it. I had ignored it with my oldest and his writing looks atrocious.
This is a fun way to get my son introduced to the letters because cursive letters may as well look like a new alphabet, at least to him anyways.
Letter Find Supplies
Print out the cursive letter find pages onto paper and have your child use a bingo dabber or dot marker to find the correct letters. If you’d like to reuse them, place them in a page protector and have your child use a block, pom poms or mini erasers to mark the correct answers.
To extend the activity, have your child write about their favorite ocean animal, or use these ocean animal food chain printables. Put on an ocean documentary and get some library books about the ocean. We’re still a huge fan of picture books paired with non-fiction selections so we can see the real versions of the animals.
Try these fun ocean activities for kids to extend the learning fun.
Recommended Ocean Books for Kids
I always like to have an ocean encyclopedia on hand to since the kids love to see real photos of all of the weird sea creatures that are found in the ocean.
