Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Fingerplay: Beach Balls
A little beach ball
A bigger beach ball
A great big beach ball
I see!
Now, let’s count them
Are you ready?
One, two, three!

Movement Song: The Waves on the Sea
(tune: Wheels on the Bus)
The waves on the sea go up and down,
[Raise and lower arms.]
Up and down, up and down,
The waves on the sea go up and down
All day long.
Additional Verses:
The shark in the sea goes snap snap snap..
[Clap your hands.]
The fish in the sea go swish swish swish..
[Swish back and forth.]
The boats in the sea go toot toot toot…
[Make blowing horn motion.]

Rhyme: A Sailor Went to Sea
A Sailor Went to sea, sea, sea
To sea what he could see, see, see
But all that he could see, see, see
Was the bottom of the deep blue
sea ,sea, sea

(Repeat faster)

Movement Rhyme: I’m a Little Octopus
Arm #1 goes swish, swish, swish.
[swing arms back and forth]
Arm #2 helps me catch fish.
[wiggle hand back and forth]
Arm #3 pats my head.
[pat hand on head]
Arm #4 makes sure I’m fed.
[put hand to mouth]
Arm #5 swims me to shore.
[move arms in swimming motion]
Arm #6 touches the ocean floor.
[touch hand to floor]
Arm #7 can grab and tug.
[open and close hands]
But all eight arms give me a hug!
[cross arms and hug yourself]
