There Was a Little Turtle

There was a little turtle, (make a small circle w/hand)
He lived in a box, (make box w/hand)
He swam in a puddle (wiggle hands)
He climbed on the rocks. (stack hands on the other)
He snapped at a mosquito, (clap hands)
He snapped at a flea, (clap hands)
He snapped at a minnow, (clap hands)
He snapped at me. (clap hands)
He caught the mosquito, (clap hands)
He caught the flea, (clap hands)
He caught the minnow, (clap hands)
But he didn’t catch me! (shake index finger)
