This last week I combined E and F for story time. Since I did a literacy game that had to do with an elephant, I wanted to make sure that my craft had something to do with the letter F. So I came up with this 5 Little Fish rhyme and pictures.
I found a picture of a fish that I liked here. Then I put five little versions of that fish in boxes. The fish were on the bottom of the boxes and there was a bit of blank space at the top. That way when the kids cut out the boxes they could fold them over, staple the two sides and make finger puppets.
Then I had two larger pictures of the fish to be the mama and papa fish. I gave the kids a straw and they cut it in half and taped it to the mama and papa fish. Then they were stick puppets.
With the words on the handout I felt confidant that the kids could go home and do a little mini puppet show about the 5 Little Fish.
