Ribbons in the Air by Pam Schiller – Leaping Literacy

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Finger Rhyme:

Here is the barn
(make a barn by interlacing fingers of two hands inside palm of hands)
Open it wide.
Let’s go inside where the animals hide.
Here are the horses, here are the cows.
They’re eating their dinner and drinking right now.
They’ll stay here till night turns into day.
When we open the doors, they’ll all mosey away.
Out in the pasture, they’ll eat grass and hay.
The cows will moo softly, the horses will neigh.

Song: Old Mac Donald Had a Farm

We sang Old MacDonald using Puppets

Rhyme with House Puppet Theatre

There is a little mouse
Inside a little house.
Here him scamper,
Here him squeak,
He’ll come out if you say “Peep!”

We used many different animal finger puppets to depict
“If The Animals Came Inside” by Eric Pinder


We used wrist ribbons and scarves with movement songs
