We have two fish-themed pages in our quiet book. The first shapes page is the one I consider to be the most “educational” in our book. While I did not consider this to be a fun page, the kids usually do it a few times each when we pull out the quiet book.
Each fish on this page is a different color. The shape for each fish snaps and un-snaps from the page. When the shape is removed, you can see an outline for the shape to assist with matching.
Below you can see the detail within a fish, which includes a bead for the eye and stitching for a smile and fin. There is also coral along the bottom, some of which have knots and the others beads.
I found the idea for the page here, and I feel it is more fun than the usual shapes and colors pages, which tend to be rather plain. I was impressed with the details for these fish but did not think they were suitable for learning specific colors, so I used the coral on our page instead.
This skills for this page include matching colors, identifying shapes, and learning how to use snap buttons.
