Fingerplays, such as Five Little Pumpkins help children learn language by increasing vocabulary, learning the sounds of words and hearing the rhythm of language. Children can also gain large and small motor skills by performing movements required in fingerplays. Memory and social skills are also learned by participating in fingerplays, songs and rhymes. In this particular fingerplay, children can also learn counting and ordinal numbers.
Fingerplays are fun, engaging, and educational!
