    I LOVE this idea! My kindergarten class enjoys finger plays, and they’re going to really enjoy making their fingers talk. I’ve never tried Blabberize, but will definitely give it a try soon.

    Thanks for sharing this idea, Shelly. It’s a winner 🙂

    • Thank you so much for letting me post this! I love working with young learners and finding new ways to incorporate technology to motivate them. I love the other fun stuff we do in class as well! Finger plays are a necessary component for every young learner class.

  2. Thanks for sharing.Shelly. Great ideas, very creative and fun. I wish I had very young learners.

    Hi Shelley,

    I’m a real fan of finger play songs and countdown songs. My favourite two this year are Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and Five Little Brown Frogs on a Brown log. I like to make gloves and masks to act out the songs. At the moment I’m trying One,Two,Three, Four, Five Once I caught a fish alive. It’s working really well with the kids and I love it too!

    Going to check out blabberize thanks for the idea!
