One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Activities

I love Dr. Seuss! He is the rock star of the reading world. I could go on and on and on. (And I’m sure I will over the next few weeks!) In our house, and in my classroom when I was teaching, as soon as Valentine’s Day is over the countdown is on – to his birthday, of course!

Anyway, since I have Seuss on my mind I thought I’d share some of my favorite One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish activities with you all!

Red Fish Blue Fish Math Patterns

So fun for preschool and kindergarteners!  Use colored Goldfish crackers to teach kids about ABAB, AAB, ABB, and ABC math patterns.  Demonstrate each pattern and have the kids continue it.

The cool thing about doing this activity at home is that everyone can play.  My 2 year old followed along with us while we were making the patterns together. Then, when the big kids were creating their own patterns, she sorted her fish into color piles.

Swedish fish in blue Jello-O is a classic Dr. Seuss treat.  Easy to make and full of sugar – sure to be a hit with the kids!  (Especially mine who are always complaining they don’t get as many treats as their friends!)

Anything I’m missing?  Leave the link in the comments.  I’d love to add it to my Dr. Seuss Day Pinterest board!

    I love Dr. Seuss and count down to his birthday too! I find it ridiculously exciting that The Lorax is coming out on his birthday! We will definitely be celebrating with a trip to the movies. 😀 I love the simplicity of your goldfish crackers activity. It’s something that I can quickly and easily set up for my son. And he would LOVE it. It would be a treat because he’s always on the look out for them when we’re shopping. Haha. Thanks for sharing!
