Books To Read In Kindergarten
Click Clack Moo
Item Call Number:E CRONI
When Farmer Brown's cows find a typewriter in the barn they start making demands, and go on strike when the farmer refuses to give them what they want.
Questions to talk about with your child:
Why do the cows and the hens ask Farmer Brown for blankets?
What do the cows do when Farmer Brown refuses to help them?
What deal do the cows make with Farmer Brown to get the blankets?
When the ducks get the typewriter, what do the ducks want from Farmer Brown?
What is a "neutral" party?
Fun things to do together:
Show your child a keyboard and help them type a simple note to Farmer Brown asking for something they want; Print it out for them to see.
As you read, ask your child to "read" the Click, clack refrains with you and be very enthusiastic about the sounds the animals make.
Point to the "Click, clack" refrains as you read them to emphasize the text and give the child a cue as to when to say them with you.
See if you can find a manual typewriter, then you can experiment with the clicking noises.
Sing "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"
Play a game of "Duck, Duck, Goose"
