A Little Turtle

A Little Turtle

I have a little turtle (put hands together in a fist)
He lives in a box (make a box with both hands)
He swims in the water (make swimming motions)
And he climbs on the rocks (use your fingers to crawl up your arm)

He snapped at a minnow (clap hands)
He snapped at a flea (clap hands)
He snapped at a mosquito (clap hands)
And he snapped at me (clap hands)

He caught the minnow (grab with your hand)
He caught the flea (grab with your hand)
He caught the mosquito (grab with your hand)
But he didn’t catch me! (wave finger back and forth)
