Today we read "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish" by Dr. Seuss. All week we will be doing things with Dr. Seuss books in celebration of his birthday which is on March 2nd. We love many of his books and it is a great excuse to focus on some fun activities to go with the books. Check out Seussville's website for lots more fun.
After we read the book it was time to do some activities. We used colored goldfish for several activities today. My son sorted the goldfish by color.
Obseussed has lots of Dr. Seuss activities (as you might imagine). One that we used today was to help count goldifsh in the bowls with the corresponding numbers.
Homeschool Share has lots of fun printable packs for several books. Here are some activities to go a long with this book.
Here is a Dr. Seuss Cootie Catcher. We had fun folding it and playing with it. Inside are quotes from different Dr. Seuss books.
Here is what it looks like all folded up.
You can also find printables to go with this book here.
We made a little fish craft. I traced my son's hands and then we glued them onto paper we'd colored on to make it look like they were in water. He wanted his fingers closed because he thought that looked more like a fish than having his fingers apart.
