ELA Focus Skills: Concepts of Print, Vocabulary

Have children draw a picture of one of the boats they built today. Tell them you want them to draw a picture of a boat they made and to write a caption that tells how many objects their boat could hold before it sank.

Once drawings are complete, help children write a caption for their pictures. You may want to use a sentence frame such as:

My boat floats with <number> <object (s)>.

You may want to create an “Our Boats” display in the Art Center and attach the illustrations to the boats children are referring to so children can visit them and view what other children learned.
