Farm Storytime

I had a stuffed sheep, chicken, cow, and pig on my storytime table. We talked about the sounds they made and other animals that could be found on the farm.

Our first story:

I’m not sure who git a bigger kick out of this, the kids or the parents.

My flannel was Barnyard Lullaby and it’s all about the different animal mommies on the farm putting their babies to sleep.

We did a version of Wheels on the Bus called Animals on the Farm which I found on the State Library of Iowa’s Youth Services site:

The Animals On the Farm

The pigs on the farm go oink, oink, oink

oink, oink, oink

oink, oink, oink.

The pigs on the farm go oink, oink, oink

all through the day.

The cows in the meadow go moo, moo, moo;

Moo, moo, moo;

Moo, moo, moo.

The cows in the meadow go moo, moo, moo

all through the day.

The horses in the barn go Neigh, neigh, neigh;

Neigh, neigh, neigh;

Neigh, neigh, neigh.

The horses in the barn go Neigh, neigh, neigh,

all through the day.

The chickens in the coop go peep, peep, peep

peep, peep, peep,

peep, peep, peep.

The chickens in the coop go peep, peep, peep

all through the day.

The rooster on the roof goes cock-a-doodle-doo,

Cock-a-doodle-doo,

Cock-a-doodle-doo.

The rooster on the roof goes cock-a-doodle-doo

just to start the day.

Our next book:

Instead of another flannel, we sang the Bingo song. Afterward, we watched “Duck on a Bike” on DVD. Our craft was little ceramic farm animals that they all painted and took home.
