Have You Ever Been Fishing? 
(Tune: “Turkey in the Straw” Keep on Singing & Dancing CD)
Have you ever been fishing (Pretend to fish.)
On a bright and sunny day, (Circle arms like the sun.)
When you see those little fishies (Fold hands and
Swimming up and down the bay? wiggle.)
With their hands in their pockets (Put hands in front.)
And their pockets in their pants. (Put hands in back.)
All the little fishies do the (Hands on hips and
Hoochie coochie dance! wiggle.)
*Tie an 18” piece of string to the end of a small stick or straw. Let children make fish out of construction paper and tie to the other end of the string.

Five Little Fish
(Tune: “Down in the Meadow by the Itty Bitty Pool” Silly Songs CD)
No little fishies swimming in the sea, (Hold up fist.)
Splishing and a splashing (Pretend to swim.)
And a rocking to the beat.
Here comes a little fishie, (Wave.)
Oh, say, “hello.”
One little fishie swimming in a row. (Hold up one finger.)

One little fishie… (Hold up one finger.)
Two little fishies… (Hold up two fingers.)
Three little fishies… (Hold up three fingers.)
Four little fishies… (Hold up four fingers.)
Five little fishies… (Hold up five fingers.)
*Choose 5 children to act out this song.

Baby Fish
(Silly Songs CD - I have no idea why kids like this song, but they do.  In the original version there is a swimmer and a shark, but I adapted it so it's not so violent.)
Baby fish, do-do, do-do-do-do, (Open and shut index fingers to the beat.)
Baby fish, do-do, do-do-do-do.
Baby fish, do-do, do-do-do-do,
Baby fish, do-do, do-do-do-do.

Momma fish… (Open and shut hands.)
Daddy fish… (Open and shut arms.)
Giant whale… (Extend arm and leg to make whale’s mouth.)

*Let the children make up other verses, such as one about uncle fish, grandma fish, etc. Have them suggest arm movements to do for the different fish.
