Song: “Waves in the Sea” (Tune: “Wheels on the Bus”)
(Source: Surlalune Storytime)
The waves on the sea go up and down, [Raise and lower arms.]
Up and down, up and down,
The waves on the sea go up and down
All day long.

The shark in the sea goes snap snap snap…[Clap your hands.]

The fish in the sea go swish swish swish…[Swish back and forth.]

The boats in the sea go toot toot toot…[Make blowing horn motion.]

Song: “Baby Shark”
Row your boat (doot doot,…) Row your boat (doot, doot…)
Baby shark…
Mama shark…
Daddy shark…
Grandpa shark (knuckles)…
Hungry shark (rub tummy)…
Row real fast…
Safe at last (wipe forehead)
Bye-bye shark (wave)
