For the light table I traced the shapes of plastic fish and added colour.
Then laminated the fish on a big sheet and placed it on the table.
The children then matched the fish by looking at the size, shapes and colours.
Some were challenging because they were either sideways or upside down.
Fishing in the sensory tub (minus the water).
Not only enjoying the experience of catching the fish
but having a fish fry too.
Fish painting at the art table.
Red and blue for patterning but because the fish I used were made
of plastic the focus became more of how to press it on the paper
to make a good print.
We discovered, while washing our hands, that red and blue
paint together make purple.
At the snack table we did a coloured fish sort (so excited that
these coloured fish crackers are now available in BC).
Most of the children would match the cracker to the picture then eat it.
Others did sort them all and that allowed us to talk about most and least.
