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!
 
 
 
 
Patterns for Felt Fish

This simple song works with infants and toddlers; so I've included different actions for both. Sing it slowly allowing time for motions/massage.


One, Two
(for use with infants)

 

Use simple massage as lyrics indicate. Touch is a baby’s first language, and in addition to aiding in bonding it reassures and builds security for babies. Lay your baby on a blanket in front of you as you sing and do the motions and massage.

One, two, one, two,
(hold up index fingers as you count, and slowly move them from left to right as baby tracks the movement)
I have two eyes, so do you
(point to your eyes, then gently massage around baby’s eyes as you sing)
One, two, one, two
(hold up index fingers as you count, and slowly move them from left to right as baby tracks the movement)
I have two ears, so do you
(point to your ears, then gently massage around baby’s ears)
One, two, one, two,
(hold up fingers as you count, and slowly move them from left to right as baby tracks the movement)
I have two lips, so do you
(point to your lips, then gently massage around baby’s mouth)
One, two, one, two,
(hold up index fingers as you count, and slowly move them from left to right as baby tracks the movement)
I have two hands, so do you.
(hold your hands up, then hold baby’s hands and gently massage as you sing)
So do you!
(Gently clap baby's hands together


One, Two
(for use with toddlers)


Sing slowly with toddlers, and they will naturally do all the motions with you.

One, two, one, two,

One, two, one, two,

One, two, one, two,
(hold up index fingers as you count)
