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…

 

Rhyme:

5 little seashells washed up on the shore,
Along came a wave and then there were four.
4 little seashells happy as could be,
Along came a wave and then there were three.
3 little seashells all shiny and new,
Along came a wave and then there were two.
2 little seashells lying in the sun,
Along came a wave and then there was one.
1 little seashell left all alone,
Put it in your pocket and take it home.

Turtles
One baby turtle alone and new.
Finds a friend, and then there are two.
Two baby turtles crawl down to the sea.
They find another, and then there are three.
Three baby turtles crawl along the shore.
They find another, and then there are four.
Four baby turtles go for a dive.
Up swims another, and then there are five.

Hands Go Up
Hands go up and hands go down.
I can turn myself around.
I can reach down to my shoe.
I can listen so can you.
Now let’s sit, I’ll show you how.
The next story is starting now.

Let’s Go Diving
Let’s go diving,
Let’s go diving,
Into the sea,
Into the sea.
Then we’ll swim up to the shore,
Then we’ll swim up to the shore,
Don’t forget to breathe!
Don’t forget to breathe!

Closing Song: I Think It’s Time We Have To Go
I think it’s time, we have to go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes.
Wave your tongue, wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips.
Blow me a kiss with your fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye.
Now it’s time to wave goodbye.
