Farm Fun

Farm Fun

Method:

Add the natural materials to a different section of the tray each and add farm animals. Invite your child to play and engage in discussions about the animals.

Promote learning by:

Talking about the animals, their names, the noises they make and what their babies are called.

Sing a variety of songs about farm animals including;

  1. Old McDonald had a farm
  2. I went to visit a farm one day
  3. 5 Little ducks

Talking about how many animals you can see, which is the biggest, which is the smallest, which one is brown/black/white etc. is a great way to promote numeracy concepts.
