Barnyard Fun!

This week for story time we started out by singing "Old McDonald had a Farm."  The children took turns holding up pictures of the animals we were singing about.  After that, we read Miss Moo Goes to the Zoo and Barn Sneeze (authors listed below). 

The books we read today:
Miss Moo Goes to the Zoo by Kelly Graves
 Barn Seeze by Karen B. Winnik
My First Visit to the Farm by J.M. Parramon and G. Sales

After reading those two books, we did an activity where we seperated pictures of animals into two columns telling if they live on a farm or in a zoo.  I also had the children tell me their favorite animals and where they live.  You could ask them what the animals have in commom and what the differences are.  Then we read  My First Visit to the Farm

We did a cute craft.  The children made either a puppy or a kitty mask.  All you need is crayons, glue, craft sticks, and paper masks for them to color.  (You could use paper plates and have them attach ears, etc.)
