Once Upon a Book ~ Not Norman



Not Norman: A Goldfish Story

by Kelly Bennett

Book Summary: This is a cute story about a boy who declares that Norman, the goldfish, is NOT the pet that he wants. However, over time he realizes that Norman IS the perfect pet for him!

Bible Verse: Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

We had lots of fishy fun! The boys worked together and played the Clown Fish Grid Game. They used our homemade puff ball magnets and our Education Cubes (with the Clown Fish insert cards).


The boys had fun with our Design & Drill Set and patterns. They copied the patterns and made a fish and the letter “F”.


We pulled out our Bambino LUK and played a fish color match game for some independent learning time! (You can read my review about it here.)


I pulled out our Fishbowl file folder game.


Blocks of any sort are always a hit with my boys. They enjoyed using the pattern blocks (along with the fish pattern card from PreKinders).


I discovered a fishing game (made from a Preschool in a Bag Activity Swap). We used our Education Cubes along with the color word insert cards and played a fun color matching game with our fish. The boys took turns rolling the cube. Then they had to fish out the color fish as indicated on the cube.


We even used our Purpllinker to make a fish!


Finally we had some edible fun with some colored goldfish! We made fish patterns!


We graphed our fish!


Then we got to enjoy our fish with a fun, fishy snack!
