Finger Play

Young kinesthetic and audio learners especially benefit from teaching activities like finger plays. Here is a fun finger play to use when making cookies.

I am making cookie dough
Round and round the beaters go
   (make circular motion like stirring for both lines)
Add some flour from a cup
   (pretend to pour from a cup)
Stir and stir the batter up
   (make circular motion in opposite direction)
Roll them, cut them nice and neat
   (pretend to use a rolling pin; side side of hand as a knife and 
    pretend to cut)
Put them on a cookie sheet
   (use hand as a spatula; pick up and move cookies)
Bake the, count them 1, 2, 3
   (pretend to open an oven door; hold up one, two, three fingers)
Serve them to my friends and me.
   (pretend to offer one to a friend and then pop one in their mouths)
