Fishing for Numbers

Print, cut, and laminate the numbered fish cards on the followingpages.

Make a fishing pole by tying one end of a piece of yarn or string toa wooden dowel rod. Tie a magnet to the other end of the pieceof yarn or string.

Spread the fish cutouts around a small blow-up swimming pool orcut a large round shape out of blue bulletin board paper to makewater.

Students can {go fishing
in the

pond.
Have them
{
catch

the fishand add the numbers together. Have them use counters if needed.

Ask students to put fish back into the pond and subtract thatnumber from the total for subtraction practice.

Give each child a cup of 10 goldfish crackers and a blue 9 X 12 sheetof construction paper
(
for the pond
)
.

Each page in the book has an addition problem at the bottom. Readthe sentence and have the students put the appropriate numberof fish crackers on their paper.

Repeat this for all of the addition problems in the book. Have thechildren make up a few of their own and share them with a partner.

Fish Eyes Class Book

Create a class book patterned after Lois Ehlert
s book Fish Eyes.

There are two ways to make the book. A student does 1, a studentdoes 2, a student does 3, etc. or students can use a numbergenerator such as dice or playing cards to choose their number.

If going in numerical order, have students use 2 colors of unifixcubes to make a combination of the number they were given. Forexample
:
If there number was 5, they may have a tower of 3 yellowcubes and 2 red ones. When using number generator, have studentsadd the 2 dice rolled or the 2 cards pulled together for the totalnumber of fish. For example
:
2 dots
+
3 dots
=
5 dots total

Page Example
:
If my number is 9, my page would look like this
:
Iwould write the numeral 9 in the box in the top left corner. Then Iwould write
{
Nine
(
describing word
)
Fish. For example
:
Nine shiny fishon the blanks next to the box at the top. I would use crayons,markers, stickers, or stamps to make fish that matched what Irolled or pulled or made with a tower of cubes. For example
:
Iwould draw 4 red fish and 5 blue fish in the open area on the page.

Write the equation on the lines at the bottom.
