Review the game for “Charlie Over the Ocean”

Choose one student to be Charlie. Charlie is the leader of the singing. While singing,Charlie walks around the outside of the circle. The class echoes, singing the part in the brackets. At the end of the song, Charlie touches a students that they have gone past. The student that is touched leaves the circle and tries to tag (not tackle!) Charlie before Charlie gets to the hole in the circle.

An interesting variation of this game is to have the solo singer make up new verses of what Charlie caught. ex: Charlie caught a cold; Charlie caught the kitchen.
