Fingerplays:  

Water, Water

Water, water everywhere, (stretch arms out at sides)

On my face and on my hair, (touch face, touch hair)

On my fingers, on my toes (wiggle fingers, point to toes)

Water, water on my nose! (point to nose)

Bubbles the Fish

Bubbles the fish, watch him swim, (hands together in front, swimming right and left)

He looks at you, you look back at him. (peek through finger circles)

Bubbles the fish, he has no troubles. (shake head “no”)

You say, “Hello fish!” (wave hand)

He just blows some bubbles. (blblblb… open and close mouth in circle shape)

Five Little Fishies

Five little fishies swimming in the pool, (hands together in front like swimming fish)

The first one said, “This pool is cool.” (hug arms around body & shiver)

The second one said, “This pool is deep.” (look up at hand over head)

The third one said, “I think I’ll sleep.” (rest head on hands)

The fourth one said, “Let’s swim and dip.” (make wave motion with hand)

The fifth one said, “I see a ship.” (hand over eyes)

A fisherman’s line went splish-splish-splash, (move pointer finger in arch into other hand)

And away the five little fishies dashed! (hands together in front like swimming fish)

(Fishie kiss…blblblblb…)

Like a Fish

I hold my fingers like a fish, (place one hand on top of the other)

And I wave them as I go. (move hands up and down over waves)

See them swimming with a swish, (jump hands into the air)

So swiftly to and fro. (swim hands right and left)
