Free Counting Song Mp3 and flashcards: One Fish, Two Fish

This is a fun simple song that introduces young children to the concept of counting objects. You may first want to teach the simple Let's Count 1 to 10 song, and this song next. It's up to you. I teach this song by counting through the One Fish 1-10 Flashcards (download below) and then singing the song with the students. When we sing the song we count the numbers with our fingers, then on the "1,2,3,4,5" part, clap our hands left to right like the "Let's Count Song" very simple, but effective. For more teaching ideas, lyrics and free printables please see below.

Free Fish and Cat Coloring Sheets: There are 2 animals per sheet, so you can decide to color both in one lesson, or cut the paper in half and color in separate lessons. I find coloring to be a great activity for students 2-6 years old, be sure to review the colors before you begin!

Printable Game: This is a very simple game. After downloading, cut out the fish and cat cards. Ask the students to close their eyes as you place them around the room. Next ask the students to find the cards, and after they are finished practice counting how many cards they got.
