Character 17

Click Clack Moo Cows that Type by Doreen Cronin

Book Synopsis: The cows at Farmer Brown’s farm are making demands but the farmer refuses to meet their demands and the cows go on strike.

Instructional Focus: (Numbers are for the Virginia Standards of Learning, generally Reading/English)

Reading: Inference  (3.5G, 4.5H, 5.5I) Writing: Persuasive (5.7)

Creating the Costume: Fabric paint, felt and yarn made this costume.  The ears were the usual hot glue, felt and headband.  The tail was made the same way as Max from Where the Wild Things tail was.  The great bonus about this costume is that it gets me free food on Chick-Fil-A dress like a cow day.

Delivery:  We continued our work on persuasive writing, using the techniques that the cows do to try and persuade Farmer Brown.  I also really struggle reading any of the Farmer Brown books without bringing out a country accent.
