Family Storytime – Under the Sea – Wednesday, February 5, 2014

This week’s theme is a fun one – under the sea!

Our books:

  Hooray for Fish (Lucy Cousins) – The creator of the Maisy books takes us under the sea with Little Fish and his friends.  Can you guess who is Little Fish’s favorite fish of all?

I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean (Kevin Sherry) – This is one of my favorites.  The giant squid is proud to be the biggest thing in the ocean, but is he really?

  The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark (Ken Geist) – Underwater retelling of the classic story of The Three Little Pigs.

Our song:

Did You Ever See A Fishy (Did You Ever See A Lassie?)

Did you ever see a fishy, a fishy, a fishy?
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?
Swim this way and that way?
Swim this way and that way?
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?

Our Action Rhyme:

All of the Fish

All of the fish are swimming in the water
Swimming in the water
Swimming in the water
All of the fish are swimming in the water
Bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble, SPLASH!

Verse 2 – The Great Big Fish is swimming in the water
Verse 3 – The Little Bitty Fish is swimming in the water

I could have taken a whole week to find “Under the Sea” activities and crafts on Pinterest – there are so many!  I pinned some of my favorites, and I hope you give one a try this week.  Perhaps the adorable Valentine fishy craft?  It would be perfect to make for someone special!
