Children love language and each child has a special story or ideas to share. Fingerplays in circle time can unleash a wealth of information which can be used to inspire book making, art and just plain conversation. All children will learn from fingerplays and many wonderful classroom books have been created as an extension of a fingerplay. Books about pockets, animals, transportation, hats, and occupations are just waiting to be created after your students have participated in these fingerplays! Children love fingerplays, especially when they are performed with puppets, pictures, or costumes. Oral communication allows children to share their creativity and attain a better command of language. The repetition and predictability of fingerplays coupled with rhyming and contest clues prompts children to participate in brand new fingerplays and know exactly what comes next. This builds positive self-esteem. Life's experiences can be shared in such simple activities. Take time to enjoy the children in your class through the fingerplays in this book. Enjoy these fingerplays and Let Language Make Learning Fun!Features: includes an audio cassette tape of all fingerplays
