I Went to the Beach

I went to the beach
And what did I see?
(Make binoculars with hands.)

A bird on the sand
Looking at me!
(Make beak with fingers over nose.)

I went to the beach
And what did I see?
(Make binoculars with hands.)

A fish in the water
Splashing at me!
(Wiggle one hand to imitate fish swimming.)

I went to the beach
And what did I see?
(Binoculars)

A shell in the sand
Sparkling at me!
(Raise hand to level of ears and wiggle fingers)

A crab in its shell
Waving at me!
(Make hands a shallow ‘C’ to imitate claws and wave side to side.)
