There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish is a fun twist on the classic song about a fly! Children know and recognize the repetitive nature of this book, and have an easy time following along. 

To encourage breathing and group participation, engage children to sing along with you. 

Take a deep breath (as the pirate’s belly grows) at the end of each stanza, to help children prepare for the next round! For an added challenge, have children run through each pose at the last verse of the book.
