Are you searching for interactive musical activities to the wildly popular children's book "How to Catch a Mermaid" by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton? Your search ends here! Our no-prep, movement-based lesson plan includes ten thrilling activities for your students, all related to themes found in the storybook.

While it was originally created for PreK and Kindergarten-aged children, lower elementary students will also benefit from taking part in these activities.

What's included:

  • List of simple materials (things you probably already have)
  • List of songs to add to your playlist
  • Detailed instructions for how to carry out 10 fun music activities
  • 4 pages of sheet music with lyrics, notation, and chord symbols
  • Cute mermaid finger puppets to supplement a counting activity!

My musical lesson plans teach basic musical concepts such as rhythm, singing, and movement, but are also great for developing coordination, gross and fine motor skills, and literacy skills. These lesson plans can be used as is or modified as needed, for toddlers, preschoolers, early elementary (kindergarten, first and second grade), and homeschool co-ops.

This easy-to-teach lesson plan requires simple materials - generally egg shakers, scarves, a Bluetooth speaker, and an optional piano, keyboard, ukulele, or guitar. All songs can also be sung a cappella if you don't play an instrument. You'll get activities themed for the lesson plan and instructions on how they should be performed, a complete list of songs to add to your playlist and any sheet music needed, complete with chords and notation. You can teach this lesson plan without an extensive musical background yourself!
