Ways to use these Ocean flash cards

Teachers, are you looking for fun activities and ways to use these ocean flashcards in your classroom?

If so, below I will offer a variety of ways you can use these flashcards to interact with your students in the classroom (or at home).

  • Fill your book basket with some of these ocean books in Spanish. See if your child can spot any of the ocean vocabulary words in the books. 
  • Create a word wall and place all of the ocean animal words on it. Have your child or student grab their favorite ocean animal and repeat it in Spanish.
  • Bring out the ocean animal figurines and create an ocean sensory bin. If you don’t have animal figurines, use these laminated ocean flashcards. 
  • Play a game of ocean animals Go Fish!
  • The best way to memorize words is through memory games. Print off two sets and use them as a memory matching game. This activity is perfect for younger children to practice language development and memorization skills to connect the spoken word to the image. Make sure every time you flip over a card, you say the name of what’s on it!
  • Play a fun game by having your child stand on the opposite side of the room as you, or even better outside. First, shuffle the flashcards. Then, lift a flashcard and show your child. Lastly, if they guess it right, they can take a step or hop forward! If they mess up, a step backward! Will they make it to where you are?
  • You could play a bilingual game and say the version in English. Have your child repeat it in Spanish and vice versa.
  • Place the flash cards face up on a table and see how fast your child can recognize the ocean vocabulary.
  • Another great way to use these flashcards is to play Slapjack by placing all of the flashcards face down on a table. Say a word on the list and have your child flip the cards over until they find the correct ocean animal vocabulary word.
  • Create a writing inspiration center by placing the cards in the center. Have your student write a story about one or a few of the words. 
  • For reading practice, you could cut the cards in half and use them as puzzles by having your child use their little fingers to match the new words and images with their correct halves.
