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!
Use the Fish Patterns from the PDF file to make 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?
Can you find the blue fish?
Blue, blue, this one's blue. This little fishy is blue
(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 fish 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!
