The Three Bears is a great rhyme and fingerplay for developing narrative skills. At each stage of the rhyme, a child has to ask, “What comes next?”
Pairing actions with learning is also a fun and effective way to build learning. The brain loves this kind of pairing up of different learning modalities.
Performance hint: Make the ending lighthearted or some of your more softhearted kiddos could get a little frightened. 😉
