Swimmy Activities

fivefish150x

Swimmy, Leo Lionni’s timeless tale of love and loss, is the inspiration for movement activities that encourage close listening.  The story of Swimmy sets the stage, and Saint-Saëns’ “Aquarium,” from his Carnival of the Animals, provides the music.  Contrasting sections of the piece create opportunities for fluid movement and for statues.  Includes a detailed lesson plan, as well as the music and game instructions for  the traditional song, “Alley Alley Oh,” a game that demands the same group cooperation that is at the heart of the Swimmy story.  Some brief ideas are included on extending the story into a simple play.  Recommended for grades K/1/2/3.
