Fingerplays are a wonderful way to build language and fine motor skills in the early years through the early grades.
How can you include fingerplays in your day?
- Add a fingerplay to your daily rhythm (for example, when you sit down for snack)
- Add fingerplays to your circle time
- Warm up the hands for handwork, modeling, recorder, or writing with a couple fingerplays
- Use fingerplays when your child needs help to gather his attention and focus
- Anytime, just for fun!
The easiest, quickest way to learn a fingerplay is to watch someone do it! I recorded these fingerplay videos (31 total) so you can have a repertoire always at your fingertips.
Please note these videos are intended for parent/teacher preparation, not for sharing with children (young children learn language skills best via interactions with people, not screens). I hope you enjoy them!
My goal is to help you have a beautiful, joyful Waldorf-inspired homeschool experience....with no overwhelm or burn-out included! I can't wait to have you in our Lavender's Blue crew this year! xo, Kelly
