Fingerplays and Rhymes

 

 

 

fingerpuppets

Here are some simple fingerplays and rhymes you can try at home with your child.  Using finger puppets, puppets, and stuffed animals makes them even more fun.  Enjoy!

The theme this week for the fingerplays and rhymes is fall.

Brown leafBrown Leaves by Jean Warren

Brown leaves, brown leaves, all around,
Twirling, swirling on the ground. (Twirl around)
See them dancing through the air,
See them falling everywhere. (Slowly sink to floor)

Falling Leavesleaves

Little leaves falling down,
Red and yellow, orange and brown. (Flutter fingers downward)
Whirling, twirling round and round
Falling softly to the ground. (Flutter fingers downwards in circles)

Leaves, Leaves by Susan A. Millerleaves

Leaves, leaves falling down,
Falling on the ground. (Flutter fingers downward)
Red, yellow, orange, and brown,
Triangular, oval, and round.
(Form named shapes with thumbs and fingers)

leavesFall Leaves

Down, down
Yellow and brown, (Flutter fingers downward)Fall the leaves
All Over the ground.

Rake them up
In piles so high, (Pretend to rake leaves)
They almost reach
Up to the sky.

See the Leaves by Barbara Paxsonleaves

See the leaves
Falling down,
Twirling round
To the ground,
Drifting softly
Without a sound (Put finger to lips)

leavesLeaves are drifting

Leaves are drifting slowly down, (Flutter fingers downward)
They make a carpet on the ground. (Make spreading movement with hands)
Then, swish! The wind comes whistling by, (Swing hands upward)
And sends them dancing in the sky! (Dance fingers in air)
