Sticky Fish

A popular English nursery rhyme helps me create a Sticky Board activity.  I make Sticky Boards by taping contact paper, sticky side out, to an old message board (I try to recycle everything).  The fish, bubbles, waves and seaweed are made from stiffened felt.  This felt doesn’t loose its shape and leaves less fuzz on the contact paper. I will add numbers 1 through 10 next week to make the activity a little more interesting.

Fishy Story

One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.
