If you’re happy and you know it,

If you’re happy and you know it, do all three(clap-clap, stomp-stomp, hoo-ray!)

Song:

If You Ever See A Monster (Tune: “Did You Ever See A Lassie”)

If you ever see a monster,
A big ugly monster.
If you ever see a monster,
Here’s what you do!

Make this face……

And this face…..

And this face…..

And this face…..

If you ever see a monster…
Be sure to shout…BOOOOO!!!!

 

Rhyme: with a crocodile puppet
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…

Sail Your Ship

Sail, sail, sail your ship
Sail your ship with me.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
A pirate’s life for me.

Search, search, search for treasure…

Jump, jump, jump off the ship…

Swim, swim, swim to shore…

Sit, sit, sit on the beach…

Going over the Sea

When I was one,
I had some fun,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the Captain said to me…

“Going over, going under,
stand at attention, like a soldier,
With a one, two, three.”

When I was two I joined the crew…

When I was three I drank some tea…

When I was four I went to shore…

When I was five I learned to dive…

A Sailor Went to Sea

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea
To see what he could see, see, see
But all that he could see, see, see
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea

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…

Rhyme: 5 Little Seashells

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.

Rhyme:

One 1, two 2, three 3, four 4, five 5,
Once I caught a fish alive.
Six 6, seven 7, eight 8, nine 9, ten 10,
But I let it go again.
Why did I let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on the right.

We did a felt board story of A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle
