Finger Gym


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've just started putting a finger gym box together and I've been collecting things like tweezers, pippettes, pegs etc.

I would like to put rhymes and action rhymes/activities in there for finger gym so TA's can just pick up and go.

 

Has anyone got any good examples to include?

Two fat Gentlemen

Incy Wincy Spider

 

Any rhymes where children are specifically manipulating their fingers.

Sure I'll think of some more, although I used to try and avoid number rhymes, as I tried to start my literacy sessions with a rhyme like this!

Two little dickie birds

Here's the church, here's the steeple...

Don't know what this one's called, but my children request it as 'fingers all up'

I've just remembered!

 

Open them, shut them

Open them, shut them

Give a little clap

(whisper)

Open them, shut them

Open them, shut them

Put them in your lap

(back to normal)

Creep them, creep them

Creep them, creep them

Right up to your chin

Open up your little mouth

But do not put them in.

 

If you don't know that one, the creeping is a bit like for Incy Wincy, and when you get to the last line the children fall about laughing as they have to quickly whip their hands away from their mouth and put them behind their back.
