New Swim Stroke
I can do the froggie stroke,
I can do the doggie paddle,
I can do the backstroke,
And I can do the shark battle!

(Mimic each type of swimming stroke as if in the water. On the last one thrash around like you are fighting off a shark. You can add appropriate sound effects.)
Sharks (To the tune of Ring Around the Rosie)
Swimming through the ocean
(Place hands on head like a dorsal fin)
Caudal fin in motion
(Wiggle your bottom like a shark’s tail)
Splashes! Splashes!
(Clap hands)
All get out!
(Jump out of the water)
