Text Box: This has been the number one favorite felt board song for years!  Be sure to use “different “ voices as I do on the recording. Children LOVE this, as it appeals to their very unique sense of humor!
 
 
Fishies
Use the patterns below to maket five felt fish in different shapes and colors, to match words in song. 
 
There are so many fishies in the deep blue sea. What color fishy do you see?
Red, red, this one's red. This little fishy is red 
(Repeat with other colors)
 
There are so many fishies in the deep blue sea. Can you count the fishies with me...1,2,3,4,5,
 
There are so many fishies in the deep blue sea
What color is the biggest fish you see?
 
There are so many fishies in the deep blue sea
What color is the smallest fishies you see.
 
Variation: Find clipart of different kinds of fish, and change the words to “What kind of fishy do you see?” - A great way to learn about different salt or fresh water species. You can laminate the clipart and place a small piece of  the loop side of Velcro on each fish so it will stick to the felt board. Or glue felt to the back. This is a quick easy way to make colorful detailed felt board shapes for many songs. 
 
Hint: EnchantedLearning.com has great fish pictures!

Even though back-to-school supplies are taking over the store shelves, I have a full month left of summer reading programs! (Catch the Reading Bug). So here is one more bug song for wiggling children. Of course children are always up for wiggling, so make this a year-round favorite! It’s always a big hit in my concerts!

 

This song can also be found on my Bee-Boppin’ Bugs CD.

Ants in Your Pants

 

CHORUS:
If you have ants in your pants
(clap 3 times)
Fleas in your knees
(clap 3 times)
And you feel like a wiggle worm
(wiggle)
Come on along with me and you’ll see at times
It’s o.k. to wiggle and squirm

Worms like to wiggle around in the ground

(children get down on tummies and wiggle like worms)

We’re luck that they do
‘Cause when they wiggle they stir up the dirt
And it helps the flowers to bloom
(chorus)

Can you jump up and down just like a flea
That’s what fleas like to do
If you walk under a tree where there is a flea
He will jump on you!
(chorus)

Now ants are very busy workers
They’re always on the move
So put those ants in your pants, get up and dance
Now you’re in the groove
(instrumental dancing verse)
(Chorus)

Kids like to wiggle and jump up and down
They’re just like kids that way
When they get to wiggle and jump up and down
They’re havin’ a real good day
(chorus)
