Animal Singalong

What to do:

  1. Cut the tag board or poster board into five 8– by 11-inch sheets.
  2. On each sheet, glue a picture of a common animal that the children will know the sounds of (e.g. cats meow, dogs bark, cows moo, ducks quack, etc.).
  3. Assign a group of children to be that animal sound.
  4. Sing the attached song and when it is time for the animal sound, hold up the sign. Those children assigned to make that sound should then make the sound.

  • A similar approach can be used when telling a story or reading a book about animals. This type of activity can sometimes be hard for younger children, so they may need your help. And don’t expect perfection – it’s the enjoyment that counts.
