Series 4, Episode 9: Ten Little Fingers
Anne Belcher from Branch Into Music loves to count her fingers and toes! She shares a counting song today, called “Ten Little Fingers” – you may actually recognise the tune. Anne then sings the beautiful storybook “Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes,” written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. Please purchase this book at your local bookstore if you can (otherwise I have included a Booktopia link below).
Music and musical activities support both early numeracy and literacy development, as you will see demonstrated in today’s video. Please share this “Musical Moment” with any families or early years educators who are looking for some musical inspiration. Early years educators may like to check out Branch Into Music’s exciting new online professional development program. This seven module extravaganza will run during October and November 2020 – you can find out more details here: https://branchintomusic.teachable.com/p/the-five-branches-framework-for-music-in-the-early-years/
