Songs & Fingerplays:
Fish Count
1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive!
(clap hands to catch fish)
6,7,8,9,10 ThenI let him go again!
(throw open fingers to let them go)
Why did I let him go?
Because he bit my pinky so!
(change to any part of body)

5 Fingers

5 fingers on this hand
5 fingers on that
One dear little nose
On mouth that always goes
Two cheeks so tiny and fat
Two eyes, two ears
And ten small toes
That’s the way a child grows

5 Little Ducks
This Old Man
5 Green & Speckled Frogs
