Songs & Fingerplays

Take Me Out To The Barnyard - sung to "Take Me Out To The Ball Game"

Take me out to the barnyard
take me out there right now
show me the cows, pigs, and horses too,
I hear an oink and a neigh and a moo.
There are chickens laying their eggs,
If they don't lay it's a shame.
Oh, it's one, two, three, eggs today,
And, I'm glad that I came.

Theme Ideas

Homemade Butter

When talking about all of the great things that you get from farms.
Make butter just like the farmers do with you class. It is real easy,
just put whipping cream in a jar, then let your kids take turns shaking
it soon the cream will turn into butter. To speed up the process you can
add a marble to the jar. When done have the butter on bread for snack.
