What educators are saying

My students absolutely loved using this booklet during Dr. Seuss Day! It correlated so well with One Fish, Two Fish! Thank you for creating this fun resource!
Very interactive activities! My students really enjoyed making these books after reading the corresponding Dr Seuss book.


By mixing reading with math, I get more bang for my time, so I thought I’d design an activity using Seuss’s book, “One Fish Two Fish” for our March is Reading Month, and celebration of Dr. Seuss, while we Read Across America.

Teacher Comments:

  • "This was a great combination literacy and math activity that the kids loved!"
  • "My students loved this resource." “An extremely cute activity for Seuss day!"

So that you can easily diversify your lessons, I’ve included two booklets in the packet.

The first one is an emergent reader, which is packed with over 40 Dolch sight words.

For your convenience, I’ve included a full color version, so teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share, as well as a black & white option for your students to color.

Using Seuss’s story for inspiration, I’ve included some of his rhyming words, so there are bad & glad fish, along with fish that are fat, with one wearing a yellow hat; as well as one with a star and another driving a car. The last page is also very “Seuss-ical”.

See the PREVIEW for lots of samples.

The other option, is a simple “trace & write” counting booklet, which practices numbers, plus number and color words.

Pressed for time? Assign the cutting and assembly of the booklet as homework, which is then returned so that students can complete one or pages each day, during your reading or math block.

When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group, or have children partner up and take turns sharing each page.

Teacher Comments:

  • "Great product. My students were engaged in completing this book."
  • "My students loved working on this project. We did it the same week as Dr. Seuss’s birthday."
