Sung to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”
The waves in the ocean go up and down, up and down, up and down.
The waves in the ocean go up and down, All day long!

The shark in the ocean goes chomp, chomp, chomp…
(action: child stretches arms out in front on top of each other and claps hands together)
The fish in the ocean goes swish, swish, swish…
(action: child wiggles their hands back and forth like a fish tail)
The crab on the sand goes pinch, pinch, pinch…
(action: child opens and closes their fingers like crab claws)
The octopus in the ocean has 8 arms, has 8 arms, has 8 arms…

Sung to the tune of “Row Row Row Your Boat”
Catch, catch, catch a fish,
(pretend to cast a line with a fishing rod)
Hook it on your line,
Reel it, reel it, reel it, reel it,
(pretend to reel fish in)
This one will be mine!
(point thumbs to body)
5 Little Shells
(Finger Play-Hold up 5 fingers, or Grab shells from your sensory bin)
5 little shells lying on the shore,
Crash went the waves, and then there were 4.
4 little shells down by the sea,
Crash went the waves, and then there were 3.
3 little shells smooth as new,
Crash went the waves, and then there were 2.
2 little shells sparkling in the sun,
Crash went the waves, and there was 1.
1 little shell left by itself,
I took it home, and put it on my shelf!
