Flannel Friday: Vamos a la granja / Let's Go to the Farm
This story is really fun to use with preschool and family storytime audiences. It's sure to get some laughs! I usually have all of the kids help me blow in the big wind and sweep the animals up into the air, crashing back to earth with the wrong voices a few times. I skip the arguing part and instead draw out the humor of the animals making unexpected sounds. Finally, when their original voices return, the group catches on after the first animal or two and joins in. This story is great for bilingual and/or Spanish storytimes too. Bilingual is especially fun because you get to say both "cock-a-doodle-doo" and "quiquiriquí."
I hope you enjoy!
