Printable fish alphabet for under the sea unit
Following on from the huge popularity of our number fish (see below for a link to them) I’ve made us a set of letter fish.
You can use this fish alphabet for all sorts of fun literacy activities – read on for lots of ideas!
How to use this printable
Print the alphabet (see below) and cut out the individual fish letter cards.
You might like to laminate the fish for extra durability.
Fish letter activities
:: Use them to make the alphabet. Peg up the fish on a washing line, in alphabetical order.
:: Use the letter fish to play matching games. Print two sets and see if you can match up the pairs of letters.
:: Place two sets of the letter fish face down and use them to play Memory.
:: Hide the letter fish around the house or garden and see if your children can swim around and find them all.
:: Hide the letter fish in a sensory tub and use them in imaginary play. Adding letter cards in with your pretend play makes for a print-rich environment which supports children to recognise, be confident with, and read letters.
:: make a sensory writing tray – colour it blue – and you can practice writing each letter in your ocean tray.
:: laminate the letter fish and add them to your water tub. Use nets to see which letter fish you can catch.
:: add a metal paperclip to the nose of each fish and use a fishing rod with a magnet on to catch them. Say the letter of the fish as you catch them, see if you can think of something that begins with the letter you have caught, or fish for all the letters in your name .
:: Make a play dough ocean. Set out the fish with blue playdough to create an ocean full of letter.
