Early Literacy Fun for Little People

June: Fingerplay of the Month
Get out your plastic construction tools for this one! This fingerplay helps children learn to count to five while integrating some rhythmic tapping and some intense coordination for little ones. It's also sure to get the giggles going as we count to number five and our limbs are going everywhere!
