Activity time: 10 minutes
Preparation for Activity
- Read the Description of Activity so you are comfortable leading the finger play words and actions. You may want to memorize them.
Description of Activity
This finger play underscores that all are important with good inside them.
Invite the children to follow you:
I am one and I have fun (hold up pointer finger)
Two is fine, if I am kind. (hold up both pointer fingers)
We get along and sing a song. (pointers jump up and down together)
When things go bad, we are sad. (pointers point down)
Principle one, teaches us a ton. (pointers point to either side of forehead (brain))
Every friend is important with good inside. (wiggle all the fingers)
When we remember this, our smile is wide! (pointer fingers trace lips in a smile)
Including All Participants
If some children lack the fine motor ability for these movements, have the entire group use their arms instead of their fingers.
