When they are done coloring their feet pictures, have the children cut out both of their feet and glue these onto a piece of construction paper and under the left foot teacher will write “Left, and under the right foot teacher will write “Right”.
Have the children sing the Hokey Pokey Song with you, to help the children learn their left and right, have them sing the song below and have them move their left or right foot as they sing the song below.
Hokey Pokey Song You put your right foot in, You put your right foot out; You put your right foot in, And you shake it all about. You do the Hokey-Pokey, And you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about!
You put your left foot in, You put your left foot out; You put your left foot in, And you shake it all about. You do the Hokey-Pokey, And you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about!
Then teacher will trace the left foot of each child onto colored cardstock paper and teacher will cut these out, write each child’s name onto the back side of each foot and write a number onto the front of each foot 1 – 5.
Begin by holding up one of the feet and have the children guess who’s foot your holding up, and then put the children into small groups and give them five of the foot prints with the numbers 1 – 5 written on them, have the children take turns putting the feet in order, have the children in the group help each other to put the feet in the correct order, have a race and see which group can put the feet into the correct order first.
