Practice letters and words with this animal stamping farm themed literacy activity. Post links to more other activities to create a farm themed learning unit.
Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is one of my favorite picture books. It’s actually one of the very first books I loved enough to review on this blog – way back before I even put photos in posts! Doreen Cronin’s humor pairs perfectly with Betsy Lewin’s illustrations for a book that appeals to adults as well as children. So of course I grinned when I heard it was this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids pick! The beauty of joining in this series is that it reminds of all the fun things I did with my older kids, and then I get to enjoy them with my youngest daughter.
Farm Animal Stamping: A Farm Themed Literacy Activity
Anna is a very visual and sensory learner who is just barely starting to show an interest in letters. I knew she would enjoy this farm animal stamping page, and it gives her some great practice in letter recognition. She used our Contact USA letter stamps, which are designed to imitate your classic typewriter font. I actually planned for her to use our Melissa and Doug wooden alphabet stamp set, but it turns out I accidentally packed that. Hazards of being in the middle of a move… The Melissa and Doug stamps are chunkier, but the Contact USA stamps are taller, and Anna really enjoyed using them (they are typically “mine” rather than the kids’ to use).
