Fingerplay for Earth Day


Oak Trees Fingerplay

This is an acorn so smooth and so brown,
(Make small circle with fingers)

Which from a great oak tree came rattling down.
(tap fingers on desk or table)

Now it is hiding deep down in the grass,
(hide head into hands)

Waiting for ice-time and snow-time to pass.
Here are some baby oaks trying to grow,
(raise head up – point pointers up straight)

Here are young saplings all placed in a row,
(raise other fingers and arms up straight)

These are tall oak trees in red leaves and brown,
(stand up straight and extend arms like tree)

Hear how their acorns come rattling down.
(sit down and tap fingers briskly on desk or table)
