Have the children say the phrases and do the corresponding
actions with you in this fun finger play based on Matthew
Jesus walked along the shore (walk two fingers of right hand
along left forearm).
He watched (put right hand on brow to shade eyes) the
boats at sea (touch the fingers of both hands together to form
a triangle boat, and rock them in the air-sea).
He loved (put both hands over heart) the busy fishermen
(pretend to use a fishing pole).
He called (cup hands around mouth), “Come follow me”
(beckon with hands).
