Who Caught the Fish
Pass a fish around the group as you sing. This is a great transition song as the children are moving from group to a different activity like outdoor play or centers.
Five Little Fish Went Swimming one Day
Sing the song each day, choosing a different sea animal to sing about each day.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I caught a fish alive
Sing this song each day, changing the animal that you catch each day. Try to get the kids to think about animals that are dangerous to catch like shark, whale, crab, lobster, jellyfish. You may need to change the word about what the animal does (like the jellyfish doesn't bite, it stings)
Five little fishes swimming in the sea
You could hang 5 fish on the wall and sing five little fish the first day and take one away that the shark eats. Each subsequent day you can sing about the fish that are left, four little fish on
Tuesday, three little fish on Wednesday, etc.
Five little fish swimming by the shore.
Sing this song every day, changing the animal you sing about each day. Sing about five little sharks, five little seahorses, etc. You could let the children decide each day which animal to sing about or change it according to the small group you will do that day.
