Flannels, Songs and Story Extensions

Books That Translate Into Flannel Stories
10 Little Hermit Crabs by Lee Box
Moving Day by Robert Kalan

Fish Bowl
I had a bowl of water, and in it was one fish
Swimming around with a swish-swish-swish
One little fish is so much fun..
I wish I had another one!
(repeat up to five, and then say: But I don't have room for another one!)

If You're Going to the Poo1
(Tune of "Happy and You Know It")
If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit,
If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit,
If you’re going to the pool, then a suit will keep you cool,
If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit.

…then a  hat will keep you cool
…then flip flops will keep you cool
…then some shades will keep you cool

Ocean version of "Hokey Pokey"
You put your shark's teeth in,
You take your shark's teeth out,
You put your shark's teeth in
And you snap them all about!

(Repeat with: crab's claws, octopus arms, whale spout, etc.)

Ocean version of "Five Little Monkeys"
Five little goldfish, swimming in the sea
Teasing Mr. Shark, "You can't catch me."
Along comes Mr. Shark as quiet as can be…. CHOMP!

(Countdown until there are no goldfish left)

Ocean version of "Doo Wah Diddy"
There I was just a swimming in the sea,
Singing doo wah diddy, diddy-dum, diddy-doo
All of a sudden there's a dolphin next to me
Singing doo wah diddy, diddy-dum diddy doo...

She swam fast She swam deep
She dove deep She dove deep
She swam fast, she dove deep
Hey, this dolphin's really sweet!

Repeat with:
All of a sudden, there's a crab next to me…
Singing ooo wah diddy, diddy dum, diddy doo
He pinched soft… He pinched hard…
Really caught me off my guard.

All of a sudden, there's a whale next to me
Singing ooo wah diddy, diddy dum, diddy doo
She splashed her tail… and then she rolled…
Whales are silly, I've been told!

All of a sudden, there's an octopus on me
Singing ooo wah diddy, diddy dum, diddy doo
She squeezed hard… She squeezed tight…
Til I was swimming out of sight!

All of a sudden, there's a shark next to me
Singing ooo wah diddy, diddy dum, diddy doo
Oh no…what can I do?….
I'll swim back on shore to you! (Whew!)


Red Fish, Red Fish, What Do You See?
Red Fish, Red Fish
What do you see?
I see an Orange Fish looking at me.
(repeat with fish of other colors)
