Farm animal yoga with animal sounds will warm us up, then a new scythe game will get us moving and tie our farm animal unit into the harvest.
Scythe the Wheat- Nicola Wicksteed
Scythe the wheat, at its feet; (child jumps while you whisk an imaginary scythe
under her feet)
Bind it, bind it into bundles. (turn child round)
Toss the wheat sheaves in the cart, (toss child gently on the pile of pillows)
Rickety rackety off it trundles (clap twice on rick and rack)
And then harvest for us humans, will tie in with the harvest all the little animals are busy with.
Hiding Hazelnuts- Nicola Wicksteed
The squirrels gather hazelnuts
And hide them in the ground.
They hope that when they need a snack,
They'll be easily found.
There are some nuts that they forget.
It's likely some of these
Will turn into seedlings which
grow into hazel trees.
