Today the children are going to hunt for some clues. If you can write these 5 clues out before and hide around your house so that the children believe the 'magic' is real. However, if you cant then read to your child slowly allowing time for you child to guess who it might be. 


1. "I like to move high and low. Faster, faster, watch me go!” 


2. “Under the water is where I like to be, swimming and exploring, under the sea!”


3. “When I see a shark lurking in the deep, I swim super-fast and wish I had feet!”


4. “You have chins, I have fins, can you tell what I am yet?!"


5. ‘I am a fish! The fish that could wish"




Talk to your child about the rhyming in the clues, can they hear the rhyme. 

Watch the video below, can they hear the rhyme in the book? Can they predict the rhyme?
