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!

This month’s song was from my 2008 concert series, Hello House, songs about emergency preparedness and energy conservation.. Even if you don’t attend one of my concerts, you'll find this song and others to come provide simple ways to present these important but typically non-kid-friendly topics to the youngest and oldest children. Be sure to visit the Hello House page on my website for printable activities and links to some other wonderful kid-friendly educational websites.

 

Thanks to the
Puget Sound Energy Foundation
and the
King County Library Foundation
for funding the development and presentation of this concert.
