Theme: Down on the farm
Use the five early literacy practices; talking, singing, reading, playing and writing with these books and projects!
TALK about farm animals. What kind of animals live on the farm? What do they do on a farm? What food do we get from farm animals?
Get ready to WRITE by putting together and decorating your twirling ladybugs (directions below)
SING a farm song, like Down on Grandpa's Farm or Old MacDonald Had a Farm together.
PLAY with your twirling ladybugs! For more detailed instructions, check out Make and Takes www.makeandtakes.com/twirling-paper-ladybugs
Fold your four ladybugs in half vertically. Glue or tape the sides together with the string down the middle to make a four-dimensional ladybug. Decorate and hang up in the wind to watch it twirl!
