Children love rhymes. Children love puppets. And children love fingerplays. Mitt Magic has new and old fingerplays, with pictures and patterns for dozens and dozens of finger puppet activities. The finger puppets can also make marvelous flannel board characters.
Finger puppet activities are provided for a variety of curriculum areas, for holidays and special days, and some just because they have been around for generations and children love them. Some of the activities include:
Five Teddy Bears
Five Little Robins
Five Little Speckled Frogs
Five Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed
This Little Clown
Engine On The Track
Five Jolly Pumpkins
Five Little Bells
and dozens more
Librarians and teacher talk about Mitt Magic:
"As a children's librarian I have found Mitt Magic particularly useful as an attention focus at Story Hour. The variety of the fingerplays helps me, especially when I am working around a special theme."
"As a teacher in a special program for the hearing impaired I have found Mitt Magic very useful to encourage language, I let my students remove the figures that they can name. I have been pleasantly surprised at how even my very young students are delighted when I put on my glove."
"Especially appropriate for use with very young children at home or in an infant-toddler or preschool program."
"A useful, enriching, how-to book."About the Author:
