Books to share

Meow, Moo, Cock-a-Doodle Doo: With a focus on animal noises, this book talks about many domestic and farm animals. You’ll have a moo-vellous time.

Farm by James Brown: A colorful introduction to all the animals you might find on a farm!

Animal Kisses by Barney Saltzberg: Each page features a different texture and animal! This book makes a fun sensory experience.

Action Rhyme: I Can Stretch

(follow the rhyme and pretend to be each animal)

I can stretch like a kitten
I can hop like a frog
I can swim like a turtle
I can shake like a dog
I can sway like a snake
I can flap like a bat
I can reach like a monkey
I can move like that!

Song: The Owls in the Forest

This song is to the tune of the Wheels on the Bus. Singing songs with familiar tunes helps children connect and break down the sounds of the words in the verses!

The owls in the forest go hoo, hoo, hoo
Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo
The owls in the forest go hoo, hoo, hoo
All night long.

The rabbits in the forest go bounce, bounce, bounce
bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce
The rabbits in the forest go bounce, bounce, bounce
All night long.

The bats in the forest go flap, flap, flap
flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap
The bats in the forest go flap, flap, flap
All night long.
