Fingerplays for Fine Motor Skills

Marc Brown's Favorite Finger RhymesDigital literacy is the ability to understand, evaluate, and use information when it is presented by a computer, tablet, or other digital media. With so much technology present in the world, It is important to navigate technology alongside your child. Learning to write or navigate a tablet takes practice and fine motor skills. Fingers need to learn how to hold a pencil and tap the right image on the screen during interactive apps. By using his or her hands to act out this rhyme, your child is practicing coordination and fine motor skills.
 

 

Dance Your Fingers

Dance your fingers up

Dance your fingers down

Dance your fingers to the side

And dance them all around.

Dance them on your shoulders

Dance them on your head

Dance them on your tummy

And put them put them all to bed.
