Dr. Seuss CVC Word Hunt


One of my preschoolers favorite Dr. Seuss books is One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.  Since we are working on CVC words right now I thought we would take some of the CVC words from this story and go on a hunt!

Here's what we did:

I cut out some fish shapes onto, red, blue, green and white paper.  Then I wrote CVC words used in the story and hid the fish around the house.  For this activity I chose 12 words and hid 12 fish.  Since we are up to letter W as our letter of the week I thought we would try including something with W so we used my daughters mini wagon to hold the fish. As each fish was found my preschooler sounded out the word, put in into the wagon and off she went to hunt for the next word.






Once our hunt was complete we read the story and my daughter was able to more easily recognize the CVC words in the book that she just found on our hunt.

Smiles like this means we're having fun while learning!!

  14. Great activity! I am modifying it for the kindergarten ESL class I teach by having about 30 words for a "small group" of 12 kids...hiding them on our backyard playground and the child who brings and reads the most fish is the winner! My students LOVE a competition! :)
