Action Rhyme:

“Silly Mr. Scarecrow”

Silly Mr. Scarecrow,

Standing all alone. (arms at sides)

Will you make the crows

Leave the corn alone? (wave arms)

 

Scary Mr. Scarecrow

Fierce as you can be. (make a scary face)

You might scare away the crows,

But you won’t scare me (say loud and point at self)

Song:

“The Farmer Plants His Seed”

The farmer plants his seed,

The farmer plants his seed,

Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the farmer plants his seed.

 

The rain begins to fall,

The rain begins to fall,

Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the rain begins to fall.

 

The sun begins to shine,

The sun begins to shine,

Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the sun begins to shine.

 

The wind begins to blow,

The wind begins to blow,

Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the wind begins to blow.

 

The food begins to grow,

The food begins to grow,

Hi-ho, the dairy-o, the food begins to grow.

 

Feltboard:

“Who Said Moo?”

I went to a farm when I was two,

And on that farm, I heard a “Moo!”

 

Who said, “Moo”? Horse did you?

No way! Horse said, “Neigh!”

 

I went to a farm when I was two,

And on that farm, I heard a “Moo!”

 

Who said, “Moo”? Lamb, did you?

No, ha-ha! Lamb said “Baa!”

 

Who said, “Moo”? Pig, did you?

He could, but that’s not the point. Pig said, “Oink!”

 

Who said, “Moo”? Donkey did you?

No way! Donkey said, “Bray!”

 

Who said, “Moo”? Duck did you?

No he laughed. Duck said “Quack!”

 

I was feeling so sad,

I wanted to cry,

When a black and white cow

Came walking by.

 

Do you know what she said?

I think you do….

Let’s say it together:

The cow said Moooo!
