Goldfish Counting Cards

My 3.5 year-old is crazy about counting right now – fingers, shoes, birds… you name it, he counts it. So I was excited to pull together a set of colorful goldfish counting cards that would give him practice with the numbers 1 to 20.

Getting Ready

To prep, I printed the goldfish counting cards on cardstock to give them extra durability and cut them apart with scissors.

Then, I grabbed a bowl of goldfish crackers from our pantry and invited my son to join me.

If you’re using them for a classroom, these make a great independent math center.  Simply swap out the food goldfish for some fish erasers or another manipulative!

Goldfish Counting Cards

After laying the cards in a line from 1 to 20 to help him practice reading the numbers, my son eagerly grabbed the first card and placed one happy goldfish in the bowl.

Excitedly grabbing one card after another, he practiced counting from 1 all the way up to 20.  The entire activity didn’t take us very long, which meant that it held his attention the entire way!

My son and I both agreed – this activity was an easy, delicious way to work on numbers.
