These printable activities can be used with “Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Colors”.
You might not want to do all of these activities with your class; just pick and choose what you prefer. The Fish Cracker Sort & Count might be more suited to Pre-K and the Fish Cracker Counting Sheet might be more suited to Kindergarten, but that is entirely up to the individual teacher.
Fish Cracker Sort & Count
Children sort fish crackers by color onto the colored fish on the mat. When they are done, have them count how many fish of each color and write the number on the fish. These could be laminated and used with dry erase markers if you don’t want to print one for each child.
Fish Cracker Counting Sheet
Children place one fish on each fish on the paper. You might want to have them color the fish the same colors as the crackers. Then they count how many they have of each color and write or stamp the number in the space. It would be a good idea to underline each color word with the same color crayon for non-readers.
Fish Cracker Graph
Basically the same activity as the Counting Sheet, but in a graph style. Graph and count how many fish of each color. Optional: Have children color the graph.
Fish Cracker Patterns
This set includes the patterns: AB, ABC, AABB, AAB, and ABB. Print these out and laminate so they can be wiped clean if they get messy. The cards can be cut into individual cards or just leave four to a sheet. Children duplicate the first part of the pattern by placing the matching colored fish crackers on the colored fish on the card. They continue the pattern by placing colored fish crackers on the white fish. The white fish are for the children to figure out the rest of the pattern on their own.
