- Fingerplays develop different capacities of the brain. Doing move-ment and language together draws on both sides of the brain.
- Recite this poem with your child and do the actions.
See the little ducklings, (make a duck bill with the heel of your palms together)
Swimming here and there. (move your palms back and forth)
Heads are in the water, (make a headfirst diving motion with your hands)
Tails are in the air. (put your hands behind your back and wiggle them like a tail)
