We started our second week of farm story time with Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s Duck! Rabbit! about a mysterious creature that looks like a duck and a bunny at the same time. Which is it? And how will we find out?
Our second story was Jan Thomas’s A Birthday for Cow, about a group of barnyard animals that are planning a surprise for their friend Cow. Pig and Mouse are working hard to bake a cake, but Duck has a different idea. Can they get along and help their friend celebrate his birthday?
After our stories, we danced to “Face the Facts” by Jim Gill, then went to our stations:
Station 1: the first page of this Printable Barn from Learn Create Love.
Station 2: play tool set with plastic nuts and bolts.
Station 3: animal masks.
Station 4: green and brown flubber (for grass and mud) with wooden barns and plastic people and animals. I wish I had taken a picture of this because they got so creative with it! They were making animal tracks in mud, mud paths for the cows, mud baths for the pigs, and mud-filled barns.
Join us next week for more fun on the farm!
