Right here’s a fantastic fingerplay for a snowy day:

( Holding out five fingers.)

5 little snowmen standing in a row,

Standing straight as well as tall in the deep, cool snow.

Out came the sun, radiating brilliant and warm throughout the day,

And one little snowman dissolved.

( Repeat with 4, 3, 2, 1, and also 0.)

I such as to precede this fingerplay by showing 5 images of snowmen. I copy the outline to ensure that they are the same, however after that make 2 matching pairs and one single by tinting the scarves different shades, including buttons or mittens, or offering one a mop to hold on to. We first count out the snowmen, determine which ones are the same/different and also why. (This methods counting abilities, as well as the principle of same/different and creates visual understanding abilities.) Then I tell them that I have a fingerplay or finger story concerning five snowmen that they can assist me with, yet initially they have to reveal me their five snowmen by installing their fingers!

Fingerplays increase language skills and reading preparedness. This one particularly helps with checking, one to one ratio, and also fundamental mathematics abilities. The science vocabulary word “thaw” and the concept of melting is likewise introduced.
