Fingerplays teach skills such as rhyming, rhythm, vocabulary, coordination, memory and listening
- Consider doing a fingerplay and reading a story each night at bedtime.
- After you've done a fingerplay several times, occasionally stop at a key word or phrase and allow your child to provide the words.
- Try using high and low voices, loud and soft voices, and exaggerated facial expressions when doing fingerplays.
- Fingerplays and repetitive songs help to develop young children's lanuage skills and memory.
- When children do fingerplays, they learn to predict what is coming next and associate physical actions to words.
- Fingerplays can help children develop phonemic awareness - an awareness that language is made up of small sounds. Children who lack phonemic awareness have more difficulty learning to read and write.
