Over in the Meadow: Getting Ready for our Performance

We began reading the counting rhyme "Over in the Meadow" this week.  There are so many versions--we read our Olive Wadsworth version, then compared and contrasted other editions of the classic rhyme.

We made puppets of each animal from the rhyme, then each child chose an animal to play during our class show.  We brainstormed what our meadow should include and made a background.

Each child picked an animal to add to our meadow--one separate from the puppets.  The froggies, ducks, lily pads and beavers are charming and bring life to our meadow and pond area!
