Fishin', Learnin', & Snack'n + Free Download!

I am a big fan of having one activity that can be used to teach multiple objectives. It’s a big perk, if that activity will grow with my child & I can use it at multiple stages of cognitive development. And if it is seasonally exciting, well then I. Am. Sold. This is one of those activities, and I have it for you today FREE!  Let me share with you all of the ways we use this in our home.Roll Add Write Count Coral Goldfish- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
First get the free download, print, and laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use this at the end of our school day, right before snack time.  As soon as we are done, we use the goldfish as a yummy snack!DSC_0077DSC_0082
Roll. Use foam dice to roll a number in the top 2 boxes. If your child is not counting above 6 yet, you can use a single dice.
Add. Ask your child to count up the dots, or to add them together for a sum. If you’re past addition, try subtraction. Comparisons also work great here (write greater than or less than on the sheet, or “write the number of the dice with more dots”).
Write. Your child could write the sum as a digit or a word, both numbers presented on each dice, or trace the digit or word. We use dry erase markers since they erase well on the laminated material.
Count. Using goldfish, get your child to count out the number that was presented on the dice and put them in the coral.
Fun. Enjoy!!!!
If you think your child would enjoy learning with this activity (and snack) go here for the free download!DSC_0083
