Songs
I'm a little fishy
[tune: I'm a little teapot]
I'm a little fishy
watch me swim
Here is my tail
Here is my fin
When I want to have fun with my friends,
I wiggle my tail and dive right in.
Sea
[fingerplay]
Here is the sea, the wavy sea,
[indicate small waves with hand]
Here is the boat and here is me.
[Lightly clench 1 fist for boat & pop up thumb for me]
All the little fishes down below
[put hands lower, wriggle fingers and move them behind you]
Wriggle their tails and away they all go.
Playsuit
[activity] I have a little playsuit
[point to self]
It's yellow, green and white [run hand down front of body]
I step inside [lift legs as though stepping into pants]
And pull it up [bend forward & make upward motion as if pulling up a garment]
And button it just right. [button "strap" on each shoulder]
