This week we have continued talking about the farm. Our Terrific Tigers had a blast learning all about farm animals. The vocabulary words learned this week were: rooster, hen, chicks, sheep, pig, ducks, turkeys. They also learned about Grandpa´s Farm and everything in it.
During Exploration Time they got a chance to play with different farm plush animals. They danced to farm songs as they pointed out the animals and made animal sounds. They also played with many farm puzzles. They even got to bowl with a farm animal bowling pin set.
In Creativity Class, the kids used toy plastic farm animals to print their tracks mixing colors as well as used corks to paint sheep!
During Physical Development, the kids enjoyed dancing with hoola hoops and throwing and catching balls. We danced to and galloped to songs such as “Cotton Eyed Joe,” “Old McDonald Had a Farm,” “Grandpa’s Farm,” and the “Chick Cheep.”
Circle Time has also been a lot of fun! The Tigers loved wearing masks and making animal sounds.
Stories read this week are the following: Guess Who Farm Friends, The Little Red Hen, One Sneaky Pig, A Very Funny Farm, Elmo & Abby Visit the Farm, Noisy Farm, and Who Will Help?
Next week we will be talking about planting, and introducing the insects!
