We read the book Flotsam by David Wiesner . This book actually has no words, so I am not sure if you can call it reading. We really told the story about the pictures in the book. It is a beautiful story about a boy on the beach, who finds a camera with undeveloped film in it. I love this book! As a follow up activity we created our own beach in a jar, using random things that could be found on the beach!

You will need:

glass jar with a lid
sea shells
random objects that could be found on the beach

Have the kids fill up the jar with sand about half way to the top.

Then have them pick sea shells they like and the random objects they would like to find on the beach!

At the end close the jar with the lid and tighten it.

You will get some cute beach display!

More than a year later I still have mine displayed on a shelf!!!
