Finger Play Today & Picture Play Tomorrow

These rhyming poems will continue to encourage your Literacy Circle as a movement & oral language part of you & your Toddler’s interactive play.

As your child becomes familiar with the verses, s/he may be ready to play with the pictures of the poems. Use the scene boards to introduce more vocabulary into the play.

The word cards can be used later on as a matching game. Cut apart each word, laying it near or on top of its picture as the poem is being spoken. Add more words as your child grows.

This product was absolute FUN to create! You may want to enlarge and add elements to the scene boards. Make them 3 dimensional as in a diorama, using 3 dimensional characters/setting elements.
