Under The Sea: A Thematic Unit {Giveaway!}

I just love using themes in my therapy sessions. Under the Sea is always one of my favorites to use while the weather is still warm (granted, that often goes until November here in Florida!) I love reading stories such as Ten Friendly Fish or The Rainbow Fish in therapy then following up with some fun sea related activities. I created this thematic unit to use in my therapy room and I would like to share it with you! 
This packet includes activities that target the following goals:
Vocabulary
Expressive/receptive language
Concepts of same/difference, big/small, plurals
Phonemic awareness
Prepositions
Colors
Articulation
The first activity included in the pack are sea creature flashcards. There are a total of 14 flashcards that can be used unlimited ways. My suggestion is to print out 2 copies and play a matching/memory type game with them. It's also fun to hide them around the room and have your students name the cards as they find them. 

The second activity included is a phonemic awareness activity. Each sea creature will only eat foods that have the same beginning sound as his/her name. Your students get to help the sea creature figure out what they should eat for lunch!
"This is my friend Watson Whale. He only like to eat foods that start with the /w/ sound. 
What should Watson eat for lunch?"

The third activity included is a preposition activity. Have your students complete the sentence that best describes the picture. Prepositions targeted include: under/below, over/above, next to, in front, behind, near, far. 

I have also included a BINGo game because who doesn't enjoy BINGO?! There are 4 different BINGO mats and calling cards included. 

Next up are 2 following directions coloring sheets.

Last but not least, 2 articulation homework sheets. One sheet targets the word level and the second targets the sentence level. There are no words pre-printed so you can use these worksheets for any speech sound!

You can purchase this activity in my store here! You can also try to win a copy below. If you cannot wait to purchase this activity, go ahead. If you win the raffle, you can choose any other activity from my store for free!
Good luck!
