This week our students had lots of fun learning about farm animals and their sounds! During story they loved hearing the “Old MacDonald” and holding stuffed animals to sing along. They also loved the “Noisy Farm” book where they pushed buttons to hear each animal’s sound. We have also enjoyed the B-I-N-G-O song, especially passing around a stuffed animal dog.
During circle time, we role-played as farm animals using duck masks while singing “Six Little Ducks”. The class learned the Mary had a Little Lamb story and song in Mr. Mike’s Circle Time. This week was a busy week in creativity, too. We made a paper plate cow, pasting the spots, eyes and nose with glue. We also made a Rooster, where the kids colored the rooster and pasted real feathers on the paper. The kids experienced feeling and manipulating a new texture. We also got to finish a paper bag barn.
Friday was a fun day! Our Caterpillars decorated cupcakes using marshmallows, frosting and purple skittles to create a pig and a sheep. They were very excited to create and eat them! During exploration, the toy barn with plastic animals was a great hit! The students learned each animal sound and they loved finding the animal on the bulletin board.

they also learned the difference between using a soft voice and a loud voice while singing.
