Classroom Benefits

"One Little Finger" is a fun and active song for learning or reviewing parts of the body. Simply point and follow along with the song.

Activity Ideas

Introduce new body parts names. Simply call out the body part and then point to it if students are unsure where it is. 1

Give each student a chance to pick a body part. Stand in a circle as you sing the song. When you reach the "put it on your _____," have the next child call out a part of the body. Keep going around the circle until every student has a turn. 2

Practice some simple counting by changing the number of fingers with each verse. "One little finger," "two little fingers," "five little fingers," etc. 3

This song is great to sing with children under 2 years old. The caretaker can sing and point to all the parts of baby's body. 4
