Songs & Fingerplays

Ten to the Flannel Board

Place ten figures on your flannel board in two rows of five figures each. With your children, slowing sing the following song while you point to each figure in turn. At the song end, have your children take turns clearing the flannel board, then putting ten different figures on it. Give each child an opportunity to point to the figures as they sing the song.

Counting to Ten - sung to Row, Row, Row Your Boat

One, two, three, four, five,
Six seven, eight, nine, ten.
I can count from one to ten
Then I can count again.

Ten Little Toes

Ask your children to guess how many toes they have. After they have answered, invite them to see if they are correct. Have the children take off their shoes and socks and then count their toes aloud. Show a chart with the numeral 10 at the top with the following rhyme written on it. Let the children wiggle their toes as they say the poem, and pretend to wash between their toes at the appropriate times.

Ten Little Toes

Ten little toes on my little feet
Ten little toes that look so sweet.
Ten little toes go outside every day.
They get sand between while they play.
Ten little toes go into the tub.
Ten little toes get a scrub, scrub, scrub.

Ten Flowers

As your children count along with you, place ten felt flowers on your flannel board. While you and the children sing the following song, point to the flowers in turn as you count up. Remove the flowers one at a time as you count down. Then let the children take turns counting flowers as they put them on the flannel board and remove them while the group sings the song.

Ten Flowers - sung to "Ten little Indians"

One little, two little, three little flowers,
Four little, five little, six little flowers
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers
Ten flowers in the sun.

Ten little, nine little, eight little flowers,
Seven little, six little, five little flowers,
Four little, three little, two little flowers –
Kara picked the last one.
(Substitute the name of one of your children for Kara).

Theme Ideas

Move and Count to Ten

Ask one of your children to suggest a motion the group can do while they remain seated. Possibilities include clapping, tapping shoulders, clapping feet together and nodding heads. Have your children do the motions together ten times, counting to ten as they do so. Play passes to the next child in the circle, who selects a new motion for the group to perform.
