On the Farm!

Who doesn't love a good old fashioned FARM storytime?! And sometimes, the easiest crafts can be the most fun. In this case, not really a craft either. Just fun rollin' the playdough!

Some of our favorite FARM stories include:
Piggies in the Pumpkin Patch - Mary Peterson
Sally Goes to the Farm - Stephen Huneck
Farmer Brown Goes Round and Round - Teri Sloat
The Cow Loves Cookies - Karma Wilson
The Big Red Barn - Margaret Wise Brown
Piglets Belong to Pigs - Scholastic Rookie Preschool
Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop - Lisa Shulman
Barn Dance - Bill Martin 

Yes, the tractors got stuck in the 'mud' and some animals needed to be put behind a fence. But we also saw a snake farm, had an entirely green farm, and witnessed alot of sharing.

And had to do my favorite farm song of course:

All Around the Barnyard
All around the barnyard, the animals are fast asleep (kids pretend to sleep)
Sleeping cows and horses, sleeping pigs and sheep. (you can snore, etc)
But here comes that cocky rooster, to sound his daily alarm...
"Cock-a-doodle-doo!" Wake up sleepy farm! (act like a rooster and yell really loud so they all wake up!)
