We read stories about some very dynamic ocean creatures…there was a shark who dreamed of being a detective, a boy whose little grey fish seemed to grow way beyond the confines of his fish tank and a squid who couldn’t stop bragging about being the BIGGEST thing in the ocean (until he became the BIGGEST think in a whales stomach).
Here are some of the stories, songs and activities we shared:
Opening Song: Clap Everybody and Say Hello!
Movement Activity: Open Shut Them
Transitioning Activity: Head Shoulders Knees & Toes
Closing Songs: Your Are My Sunshine & Goodbye (Wiggleworms)

Five Little Fish
Five little fish swimming near the shore,
One got caught and then there were four.
Four little fish swimming in the sea,
One got caught and then there were three.
Three little fish swimming in the blue,
One got caught and then there were two.
Two little fish swimming in the sun,
One got caught and then there was one.
One little fish heading straight for home,
He decided he’d never, ever roam!
