Fingerplays For Preschoolers
Fingerplays for preschoolers and teaching young ones involve the use of ‘finger puppets’, your ‘fingers’ or ‘gloves’ that include different characters or prop items being part of the song or story you are presenting to the preschool classroom or to other young children.
Finger plays involve some sort of hand or finger movements or other fun actions that go along with the pre k song or fingerplay activity that the preschoolers or kindergarten kids can observe or try and imitate while they learn.
Pre School Fingerplays Samples:
Examples of finger plays for kids are seen on the left of this page and include activities and action songs like; “Farmer Brown’s Red Apples”, ” My Baby BumbleBee Song“, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and others which we will continue to add.
These fingerplays for preschoolers and their movements get pre k children using the small muscles of their hands and fingers and help children to develop or improve their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination skills.
As with other stories and preschool songs for kids, there is usually some sort of educational aspect or ‘life lesson’ to learn from the fingerplays and their song lyrics.
