1 Fish 2 Fish Interactive Printable Placemat

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

If you found this activity on Pinterest, welcome! 
I'm a little obSEUSSed with Dr. Seuss. I love to share projects inspired by his books and other children's book activities. 
Print it on turquoise or blue paper to look like water.

I created these One Fish Two Fish printable snack mats for my son's preschool.  I printed one for each child and placed it in a clear plastic sheet protector so they can reuse it. The kids loved using  Goldfish crackers as counting pieces and once they were finished they ate them all up. Now you can pull out this place mat anytime your preschool children are ready for a game of 1 Fish 2 Fish. 

Pin It

Optional way to play: Roll a die to see how many fish to add to your fishbowl. Continue taking turns rolling the die until each bowl is full of fish.

Pin It

Read the Dr. Seuss book, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, with your child and have them pay attention to the rhyming words.  Read the first part of the sentence and leave off the last rhyming word to see if they can fill in the missing word. 
Rhyming is a great pre-reading skill.

A great pre-school snack activity. We use these for snack time at home and now I've printed off a stack and sent them with a bag of goldfish crackers to school for snack time.

I also made this one with some basic math for ages K-2 grades. There is also a page of blank fish bowls and one with color words to use with rainbow colored fish crackers.

We have a couple of alphabet placemats that we use for Harrison, but these are cute...

The most telling comment in this post? That you ate three bags of Strawberry Milano Cookies! Although, Chad has admitted to helping out a bit :)

Hi! Love this, but it's actually forwarding me to a Google documents page with no further reference to this one :(.
