Charley Over The Water
Source: Games And Play For School Morale
Category: First Grade
Players stand in a circle, hands joined. One player is chosen to be
Charley. If more than twenty players have several Charlies. Charley
stands in the center. The other players, skipping around him, repeat:
Charley over the water, Charley over the sea,
Charley caught a blackbird, can't catch me.
At the last word, the players stoop and Charley tries to tag them
before they reach that position. If successful, the player tagged
changes places with him.
