Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: The More We Get Together
The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

 Rhyme: Five Little Seashells

Five little seashells washed up on the shore,
Along came a wave and then there were four.
Four little seashells happy as could be,
Along came a wave and then there were three.
Three little seashells all shiny and new,
Along came a wave and then there were two.
Two little seashells lying in the sun,
Along came a wave and then there was one.
One little seashell left all along
Put it in your pocket and take it home.

Rhyme: Five Little Fishes

Five little fishes,
Swimming in the sea.
Teasing Mr. Shark,
You can`t catch me,
You can`t catch me.
Along comes Mr. Shark,
As quiet as can be… Snap!

(Repeat with:) Four little fishes, etc…

Song: The Waves on the Sea
(tune: Wheels on the Bus)

The waves on the sea go up and down,
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..

The fish in the sea go swish swish swish..

The crabs at the beach, crawl back and forth..

The jelly fish go wibble, wobble, wibble…
