Week 3--Monday

* THEME: C is for Cow. (add letter C and cow picture to learning poster)
* Vocabulary word: mammal--a type of animal that makes milk

Cow facts:
  • An adult male cow is called a bull.
  • An adult female cow is called a cow.
  • A baby cow is called a calf.
  • Cows eat corn, hay, barley, grass, and wheat.
  • Cows give us milk, meat, and leather.
  • Milk can be made into other dairy products like butter, cheese, and yogurt.
Book: The Big Red Barn

Poem: Little Calf by Katrina Lybbert
"Good morning, little calf," gentle mother said,
"It's time to get up from your sweet hay filled bed."
Little calf jumped, stamped his feet, swished his tail,

And followed
his mother past a shiny milk pail.

Out into the backyard, holding his head high,

Little calf looked up to the blue, blue sky,
Birds flying past chirped a joyful song,
Little calf smiled, and felt happy all day long.
Song: Old McDonald Had a Farm

...and on his farm he had a bull...with a moo, moo here...(make the sound deep and loud)
...and on his farm he had a cow...with a moo, moo here...(make the sound high and loud)
...and on his farm he had a calf...with a moo, moo here...(make the sound little and soft)

Activity: farm animal "puzzle". Make your own puzzle. I printed and colored this picture, cut it apart randomly, and let Eli put it back together. Warning: do NOT try to do this with a Hannah around! Since the pieces don't actually lock together, it doesn't take much for it to get all messed apart again. It works for Eli though, and he had lots of fun doing it again and again!
* Memory verse: Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind to one another."

Memory verse song by me (tune: "Around the Mulberry Bush")
Ephesians four verse thirty two
Be kind to one another
Share God's love with everyone
Be kind to one another.
Craft: I just printed a plain cow coloring page and then had the kids sponge paint black spots on it.
