Nigiwiki et Nagawaka

Oh what a funny rhyme this is! At first the children are a little intimidated by the finger play but truly riveted by the story. It is so funny, we repeat this one countless times and the children never tire of it as they proudly become more and more adept. Next year this will be the second poem I teach after “J’ai un poisson”.

Here is the poem with translation and a youtube video with actions.
