Flannel Friday: Colour Fish Flannelboard

July 8, 2011

Using Lois Ehlert’s Fish Eyes for inspiration, I had a lot of fun making fish to go with The Color Fish Song found at Mrs. Ayers’ KinderThemes Ocean Songs and Fingerplays page.

Color Fish Flannel

Color Fish Song
(Tune: I saw three ships)

I saw a fish go swimming by, go swimming by, go swimming by.
I saw a fish go swimming by, so early in the morning.

Continue by changing the verse to match the colours on each fish. Such as:

I saw a fish that was red and blue, red and blue, red and blue.
I saw a fish that was red and blue, so early in the morning.
