Poetry is valuable for stimulating young children’s brain growth. Combine poetry with fun movements, and you’ve got an effective way to actively involve them in exploring science, math and language arts concepts. These finger rhymes cover themes such as: technology, outer space, colors, fruit, animals’ life cycles, plants, sharing, birthdays, other cultures and numbers. What fun your children will have as they pretend to drive a car through a tunnel, fly on an airplane, float to the moon and personify numbers. They’ll enjoy pretending to be growing animals, bouncing balls, rolling apples and newborn chicks. Plug these rhymes into your daily routine for fun enrichment during gym, science, math or language arts lessons. They’ll transform your classroom lessons into live action!
