Action Rhyme: “I’m a Little Octopus”

Arm #1 goes swish, swish, swish (swing arms back and forth)
Arm #2 helps me catch fish (wiggle hand back and forth)
Arm #3 pats my head (pat hand on head)
Arm #4 makes sure I’m fed (put hand to mouth)
Arm #5 swims me to shore (move arms in swimming motion)
Arm #6 touches the ocean floor (touch hand to floor)
Arm #7 can grab and tug (open and close hands)
But all eight arms give me a hug! (cross arms and hug yourself)

Song: “The Shark Song”

Oh there’s a shark
Do do do-do-do
A baby shark
He lives in the ocean
He eats fish
CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP
He’s got a fin
A dorsal fin
And that’s the end…

Mama shark, Daddy shark, Grandma shark, Giant shark

I learned this song from this fabulous video from OoeyGooeyLady:
