We introduced the theme with pictures and print of various farm animals, and we sang Old Mc Donald had farm. We listened to farm animals sounds to guess what animal, and pointed to animals on picture cue cards to name.

The children stamped with hoof stamps and duck stamps on white paper with brown and yellow paint,, Wednesday- we brushed with dish brushes with black paint on paper plates and added cotton balls to make sheep and Friday, we will stamp with animal pigs, brown paint and pink paper to make muddy pigs.
