Bickle bockle blue bottle
Fishes in the sea
If you want a partner
Just choose me.


Put an odd number of students in an specified space (I put them inside a circle on the floor).

Students walk around aimlessly in the circle while singing the song. On the last word, students choose the person who is standing the closest. Whoever is left without a partner is “out” and gets to choose another person to go “out” also.

Play continues until there is one person left.

EGA version – for recorder
