Down on the Farm (day 3) and pictures…

We continued our theme of the farm today…we re-read Mrs. Wishy-Washy and then we acted it out.  I acted it out for the children first and then I had some actors and actresses come up from our class to help me:

I used a dishpan, and old scrubber and animals I collected various places to help wash the animals:

More tomorrow……
