The Waves on the Sea

(To the tune of the Wheels on the Bus)

The waves on the sea go up and down,

up and down, up and down

The waves on the sea go up and down all through the day

 

The fish on the sea go swish, swish swish

Swish, swish, swish

Swish, swish, swish

The fish on the sea go swish, swish, swish all through the day

 

The diver in the sea goes swim, swim, swim

swim, swim, swim

swim, swim, swim

The diver in the sea goes swim, swim, swim all through the day

 

The shark in the sea goes snap, snap, snap

snap, snap, snap

snap, snap, snap

The shark in the sea goes snap, snap, snap all through the day

 

The boats on the sea go side to side,

side to side

Side to side

The boats on the sea go side to side all through the day

Song of the Week: Circle Time Songs

Song of the Week, Preschool, Toddlers,, Music, ECE, Play

 

This week we bring you 2 songs for gathering children.  Since we believe children shouldn’t be forced to join circle time these would be used to notify children that an activity is getting ready to take place (Game, Book, Meeting, etc.), they then have the choice to join in.  Adding a song alerts children and encourages them to join.

Make a Circle: Tune “Frere Jaques”

Make a circle, Make a circle

Make it round, Make it round

Make it in a hurry, Make it in a hurry

Then sit down, Then sit down.

Ready And You Know It

If you’re ready and you know it, sit right here….

If you’re ready and you know it, sit right here….

If you’re ready and you know, then your face will surely show it

If your’re ready and you know it sit right here

 

Song of the Week: Let’s All Make A Circle

2

 

A great song for gathering children for a game or activity.  Sing several times as a transition song.  This is a good one for all ages.

Lets All Make a Circle

Lets all make a circle, a circle, a circle

Lets all make a circle so big and so round

A circle, a circle, a great big round circle

Lets all make a circle so big and so round
