learning monkeys: {Dr. Seuss Inspired} One Fish Two Fish Counting Game

 

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to participate in the Virtual Book Club, but I was super excited for the month of February – Dr. Seuss!

So with Dr. Seuss’s birthday coming up soon (March 2nd) plus Virtual Book Club, I couldn’t wait any longer to dive into all the ideas I have to celebrate this occasion.

For the festivities we read our current favorites, The Foot Book and There’s a Zamp in my Lamp.

We also read several others we’ve been checking out for the first time, including One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

So let’s get started shall we?

I’ll start the Seuss-A-Palooza with a free printable that goes along with One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, our current Dr. Seuss read :)

It’s a simple game to practice counting, numbers, and colors with a fish bowl & some little fishies to swim in the bowl :)

Fine motor skills are also practiced by having their little hands pick up the small game pieces and placing them in the bowl

Here’s what you’ll need:

Here’s how to make it:

  • Print out your two printable sheets (see below to print); the game board & game pieces
  • Before you laminate the fish sheet, using your circle punch, punch out one fish in each color to make the die, set these 6 fish aside
  • Laminate both printable sheets
  • Using your 1” circle punch, punch out all your little fishies.  These 72 laminated pieces are your game pieces (12 of each color because the highest number that can be rolled is twelve)
  • Next, attach the 6 non-laminated fish circles to the wooden die

Once the fish die is dry, gather your set of regular dice, game pieces and game board to begin.

Make an advanced game to count up to 24.

Just print out a second fish printable, and follow the instructions to make a second fish die along with 72 more colored fish game pieces.

  9. thank you so much! We will be using this game for my early admin. kindergartens

  10. Love the activity, and the fact that you made it yourself. Dr Seuss is so much fun and makes for fun games.

  11. Wow what a great idea/offer. I work with 4-5yr olds. We do a big unit on Dr. Seuss, I will happily be adding this activity to the many I’ve collected over the years. Thanks so much for sharing it!

    • Wonderful Wanda! I’m so happy it will be useful for you and your class :) It makes me happy to provide a useful learning tool for little ones! Thanks for taking the time to comment! xx ♥ m

  12. I’ve been looking all over for something like this. Thank you for the freebies! I teach Spanish and I’m planning a one fish two fish unit for numbers! This will work in any language.

    • Yay! So awesome – and super thrilled it is so easily adaptable to other languages as well! Thank you for the comment love! xx ♥ m

  13. So in love with this

  14. Love this game. Wondering if its okay to play it at our Library’s Dr Seuss Party? If not I understand why just wanted to check. Thanks so much.
    -k

    • Hey Karen! Of course – as long as it’s not resold or distributed for payment – I’d love you too use (& secretly wish I could come too :)! Any of my printables are free to use for educational purposes :) Thanks for checking though!! And thanks for checking it out too!! I’m working on a few more to possible go along with this book or different Dr. Seuss books – so be sure to check back too! xx ♥ m

      • So does only one child play at a time? If a group of kids….. do they keep the fish in the bowl after playing their turn and what happens when they start to run out of fish. Say they roll the number 7, but there are not 7 blue fish left -what do you do?

        Thank you. p

      • Hey Paula! Yes – it’s made for just one child to play – a nice little quiet game they can play when you are making dinner :) But you could absolutely play with more than one child by printing out more of the game pieces. Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by & checking them out :) xx ♥ m

      • Thanks so much for the fun game. I posted a few pics on your FB feed of our kids playing your game. :)

      • So awesome Karen!!!! I love it – thank you :). But silly FB is not showing it – I even checked my spam :(. Can you email it to me? (mamamissblog@yahoo.com) & I’ll upload it to FB? I would love to see them :). Thanks!!!!
