PROPS (PUPPETS, FLANNEL BOARD, ETC.):
      Magnet Board Story: “The Cruise Ship Reunion”
      Idea for magnet board: Cut out pictures or patterns of different boats, such as:
sailboat, rowboat, canoe, kayak, submarine, tugboat, cruise ship. Glue to blue construction
paper, trim, leaving a blue border, & laminate. Then put on the board, emphasizing which
boats have motors and which don’t.

CRAFT SUGGESTIONS:
     Younger: Paddle Wheel boat
     Older: Sunken ship
              BOATS: FINGERPLAYS, SONGS, AND GAMES

Number three was tall as the mast                  (Hold   up middle finger)

FIVE LITTLE SAILBOATS (green, red, white, blue, yellow: magnet board)
Five little sailboats, bright and shiny clean.
One tipped over, it was green.
Four little sailboats, with all sails spread.
One sailed into a storm, it was red.
Three little sailboats, what a beautiful sight!
One bumped into a whale, it was white.
Two little sailboats, coming close for a view.
One smashed into the rocks, it was blue.
One little sailboat, now a lonely fellow.
He sailed home for the night, he was yellow.

THE GOLDEN BOAT
This is the boat, the golden boat,                 (Cup hands together)
That sails on the silvery sea,                     (Undulate hands like waves)
And these are the oars of ivory white,             (Interlace fingers, palms upward)
That lift and dip, that lift and dip.              (Lower and raise fingers)
And here are the ten little rowing men             (Show 10 fingers up high)
Running along, running along,                      (Make fingers run)
To take the oars of ivory white                    (Interlace fingers, palms upward)

All the fishes down below                          (Put hands down low)

Back & forth, people I carry,                    (Hands move back & forth in front of body)

SONGS:

THE BOAT ON THE WAVES (tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)
The boat on the waves goes rock, rock, rock, / Rock, rock, rock; rock, rock, rock.
The boat on the waves goes rock, rock, rock, / All around the lake.
Other verses:
The wind in the sail goes swish, swish, swish...
The waves on the lake go splish, splish, splish...
The sail on the boat goes sway, sway, sway...

BOATS ARE SAILING (tune: “Frere Jacques”)
Boats are sailing, boats are sailing / in the sea, in the sea.
Floating all around us, floating all around us / look & see, look & see.

DOWN BY THE HARBOR (tune: “Down By the Station”)
Down by the harbor / early in the morning,
See the little sailboats all in a row.
See the happy sailor turn the little rudder;
Puff, puff whoosh, whoosh off we go!
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SAILBOAT? (tune: “Did You Ever See a Lassie?”)
Have you ever seen a sailboat / a sailboat, a sailboat?
Have you ever seen a sailboat / flapping its sail?
Flapping this way and that way / flapping this way and that way.
Have you ever seen a sailboat / flapping its sail?

THE HORN ON THE BOAT (tune: “Wheels on the Bus”)
The horn on the boat goes toot, toot, toot / toot, toot, toot / toot, toot, toot
The horn on the boat goes toot, toot, toot / all day long.
The waves on the boat go slosh, slosh, slosh…
The sailors on the boat say aye, aye sir…
The people on the boat rock back and forth…
The captain on the boat shouts land ho!

MICHAEL ROW YOUR BOAT ASHORE
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah.                    (Make rowing motions)
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah.
Sister help to trim the sail, hallelujah…                   (Raise arms up and wave like sails)
The River Jordan is chilly & cold, hallelujah…              (Wrap arms around self & shiver)
Jordan’s River is deep & wide, hallelujah…                  (Indicate “deep” & “wide”)
Milk and honey on the other side, hallelujah…               (Point across room)

MY BIG BLUE BOAT (tune: “Wheels on the Bus”)
I love to row in my big blue boat,                          (Pretend to row)
My big blue boat, my big blue boat.
I love to row in my big blue boat,
Out on the deep blue sea.
My big blue boat has two red sails,                         (Raise arms above head & wave gently)
Two red sails, two red sails;
My big blue boat has two red sails,
Out on the deep blue sea.
So come for a row in my big blue boat,                      (Pretend to row)
My big blue boat, my big blue boat.
So come for a row in my big blue boat,
Out on the deep blue sea.

ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT
Row, row, row your boat, / Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, / Life is but a dream.
(Have pairs of children sit on the floor, facing each other. Legs should be spread with feet touching
their partner’s feet. They may then rock back & forth as a boat would rock)
Other verses: steer, pole, tug,
Sail, sail, sail your boat / on the ocean blue.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily / Boats are great, it’s true!
**Row, row, row your boat, / Gently down the stream,
Ha! Ha! I fooled you, / I'm a submarine!
A SAILOR WENT TO SEA, SEA, SEA
A sailor went to sea, sea, sea, / To see what she could see, see, see.
But all that she could see, see, see, / Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea!

WE SAIL A SHIP (tune: “Drunken Sailor”)
We sail a ship with a boy named (child’s name).
We sail a ship with a girl named (child’s name).
We sail a ship with a boy named (child’s name).
Early in the morning.

GAMES:
MR. GUMPY’S OUTING: Use with the book.
        Using masking tape, put an outline of a boat on the floor. The librarian acts as narrator & Mr.
Gumpy, and the children participate as the boy, girl, and animals who join Mr. Gumpy in his boat. Add
animals as necessary so that all the children can participate; e.g., two pigs instead of one. Read the
story, having the children get into the “boat” as you come to their animal. When the animals fall out,
the children fall out of the “boat” and onto the floor.

      We did an extension activity for "Who Sank the Boat." We filled a pie tin with water. Then,
each child got a paper muffin cup, and this was his/her boat. We made prediction about how many
pennies (or other objects) it would take to sink our boats. Then, we tested it out.

THREE TIMES ROUND
       Say it in kind of a chanting voice:
       3 times round went our gallant, gallant ship / and 3 times round went she.
       3 times round went our gallant, gallant ship, / till she sank to the bottom of the sea.
       Pull her up, pull her up, said the little sailor boy.
       Pull her up, pull her up, said he. / Pull her up, pull her up, said the little sailor boy,
       Or she'll SINK to the bottom of the sea.
(Children turn around in circles, then sink to the floor; slowly stand up during "pull her up," then sink
again. You can also do this holding hands in a circle and circling around for "3 times round," then, still
holding hands, sink to the floor, slowly pull each other up, and sink again)
