Counting can be a fun task for toddlers so we provide a story about the Five Little Fishes. They will begin by counting forward and should be provided a lot of experience practicing this new skill. They will also begin to recognize written symbols. We were so surprised that they already know how to count.

Five Fishes in a bowl

Five fishes in a bowl
And the little one said
Swim over , swim over
So they all swim over
And One jumped out

Four fishes in a bowl
And the little one said
Swim over , swim over
So they all swim over
And One jumped out

Three fishes in a bowl
And the little one said
Swim over , swim over
So they all swim over
And One jumped out

Two fishes in a bowl
And the little one said
Swim over , swim over
So they all swim over
And One jumped out

One fish in a bowl
And the little one said
I’m sad , I’m sad
So they all swim over
And they all jumped in

Five Fishes in a bowl
And the little one said
I’m happy I’m happy !

See you next time!
