Fingerplays

27 Apr

Today, I’m excited to share some fingerplay videos with you from our local library. They have a program called 6 by 6 which introduces parents to the six reading skill children should have by they time they are six years old and beginning to read. You can access the entire program and videos by clicking here.

You can view three of the videos here, including one in Spanish. Even if you don’t speak Spanish, I think this song is easy enough to learn so you can share it with your child. Foreign languages at an early age build brain power!
