Fingerplays and Rhymes
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 shapes.
The circle is a shape
That's easy to be found.
It has no corners on it
And is completely round. (Form circle with fingers)
A Square is its Name
Here's a shape that you should know. (Form square with fingers)
A square is its name.
It has four corners and four sides
That measure all the same.
The triangle is a simple shape. (Form triangle with fingers)
I think you will agree.
Count its sides and corners
And you will find just three.
This shape is called a rectangle, (form rectangle with fingers)
It's found most everywhere.
It has four corners and four sides,
Sort of like a square.
But if you call this shape a square,
You would be very wrong.
Since two of its sides are short,
And two of them are long.
Circles, rectangles, triangles, squares,There are so many shapes out there.
Everywhere you look you'll see
Another shape. What will it be?
Check back next week for different fingerplays with a new theme!
