15 Easy Fingerplays

Overview

The 15 stories in this collection represent many cultures from around the world. I have selected and adapted them specifically for the fingerplay approach. Your class will enjoy the stories even without the fingerplay gestures. However, with the gestures, you have an opportunity to engage your children in a very exciting story adventure.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1--Bill Gordh presents simple folktales from around the world in this pleasing production. Counting stories, such as "Six Silly Cats in Calico Caps" (France), repetitive tales like "The Tomorrow Monkeys" (Brazil), a humorous story starring a fly and a flea (Russia), and a cumulative tale featuring a sparrow and a crow (India) are just part of the fare. These stories are longer than the usual fingerplays and fill their own niche. The recording is engaging and includes light background music representative of each story's culture. Although the tape alone would make a fine listening choice, the 80-page book used along with the tape makes a useful package. The book gives complete sources for the stories, where the stories originate, words and hand motions for the "fingerplay" actions, and several ways to extend the stories across the curriculum. Gordh suggests creative ways to use the stories, providing activities for language arts, art, science, math, music, social studies, and movement. The book's introduction furnishes the inspiration to work with folktales, including tips that are nearly as valuable as the stories themselves. The term "fingerplay" may be misleading to those who work with preschoolers because these tales are short stories with actions that involve listeners. Buy the package for the classroom, put the tape in a listening station, and watch folktales come to life.-Angela J. Reynolds, West Slope Community Library, Portland, OR
