You know I LOVE fingerplays! They are almost a lost art in our world of screens and technology, but children enjoy them as much today as I did when I was a little girl many, many years ago. Through fingerplays children can develop oral language, listening skills, small motor skills, their imaginations, and much more. They can be used to focus the children’s attention or during transitions to engage children.

Several months ago Vanessa Levin ( and I did a webinar on fingerplays.

Everyone wanted more, more, more, so Vanessa created this delightful packet with all of my favorite fingerplays.

What’s Included?
The 54 page printable fingerplay set in color includes:
     Detailed explanation of why fingerplays are an important part of every early childhood classroom
     List of standards/skills supported through the use of fingerplays
     Words to 40 different fingerplays
     Each fingerplay includes directions for hand motions or movements.

These might be better than Black Friday bargains!!!
