FINGERPLAY:

10 Galloping Horses
Ten galloping horses, (hold up ten fingers)
Came through town. (slap hands on legs like galloping)
Five were white, (hold up five fingers)
And five were brown. (hold up five fingers on other hand)
They galloped up, (slap up toward top of thighs)
They galloped down, (slap down toward knees)
Ten galloping horses, (hold up ten fingers)
Came through town. (slap hands on legs like galloping)

APP:

We recently purchased a Google Chromecast for our library and it has been SO useful! I love using it during storytime. I introduced it this week with this fun farm animal app and the kids really enjoyed it! I plan to make a post about some of my favorite apps in the near future 🙂

Peekaboo Barn
Cost: $1.99

**We use an android tablet so all of my apps are found in the Google Play store.
