Teaching The Lesson
When I am presenting a lesson with a book, I often revisit the book many times. I have a lot of discussions on what we notice about the book and how it connects to math. On a different day I will present the problem we will focus on that day and reread the story. After the reading I will often demonstrate a way to approach the problem with student input. I often have the class give me a few different suggestions. I always model on the easel and will incorporate using math manipulates.
Brightly colored fish introduce young children to counting and basic addition in this fun and simple concept book.. FISH EYES is one of my favorite Lois Ehlert books, it can lend itself easily to so many follow-up lessons. Her illustrations are bold, bright and beautiful. Making fish was an easy task for K's many made beautiful patterns.

There is a great poem about doubles on Pinterest that would compliment this lesson.
