Fingerplays are an important part of early childhood education:
*They allow for self expression, encouraging a child's own response in his or her use of body and speech.
*Encourage verbal participation
*They aid the child in learning to follow directions.
*Increases attention span.
*Fingerplays help develop listening skills.
*They teach order and sequence.
*Help teach number concepts.
*They increase manual dexterity and muscular control.
"Here Is The Beehive" tells the story of 5 Bumblebees hidden inside their hive. This file includes:
- 10 full-colour slides (both .pdf and .ppt), illustrating the poem
- a 10 page black and white student booklet for kids to colour, take home and share their fingerplay with parents.
- full-colour and black and white cutouts to use as puppets or on a felt board when retelling the story
- directions for use
