One, Two, Three, Four, Five

One, two, three, four, five

Once I caught a fish alive

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten

Then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?

Because it bit my finger so.

Which finger did it bite?

This little finger on the right.

While singing gently touch or tap each finger of baby so that they can react to each finger being touched.

Help your child learn which hand is their right by showing or pointing it out to them. Encourage them to wiggle their ‘pinky’ at end of song.

Try different actions during the song. Children can pretend to hold a fishing rod while catching the fish. They can pretend to make waves with one or both hands.
