This is a great excuse to play with your food! It's a quick, two-step, activity: (1) print and (2) pour Rainbow Goldfish. That's it! You can get our free printable here.
They were so excited that we were going to be munching on Goldfish while working. As a teacher, I used to love going to Lunch and Learns also- there's something about snacking and working that go so well together.
Once again, Little Miss decided to work on placing all of the red fish first, while Wild One looks over at her paper every few minutes. It's funny how some things don't change.
While they were working. I asked: which column has the most Goldfish? least? looking at the number line, how many red Goldfish do you have? yellow? orange? green?
Meanwhile, Little Miss was practicing her patterning. She decided on a simple AB pattern. As she was lining them up, she started grinning and began altering her pattern into a wave design (as if the fish were swimming). I love their imaginations!
