Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell. A duck does all of the yard work for a lazy farmer. The animals get together to run off the farmer. This story tells about teamwork and problem solving. This book is good for making inferences.
We get to see baby ducklings behind the house in the lake every spring. This past spring a mama and her nine babies would cross the street in front of our house every evening at sharp! We would all rush outside to watch every night!
fill a latex glove about full with milk and tie shut. Put a very small pin hole in one or two of the fingers and the children can actually milk your "class cow" just like a real cow! I tied the glove to a string which was secured at the top of the easel.
