Students will think of other items that make that particular sound. E.g. what can swish? What makes a buzzing sound? Students will name a number of items to present to class in their groups. Book 3 – From Head To Toe by Eric Carle This is a colourful interactive book. This book is full of illustrations and simple instructions to have children clapping, stomping their feet, wiggling their toes and all the fun and exciting things animals in the book can do. Giraffes can bend their necks, monkeys can wave their hands, and donkeys can kick their legs. Children will realize they can do the same things. Activity: 1. The actions learned from the story will now be used to show emotions. Students will use the actions to show their emotions as teacher reads different scenarios. Clapping means: excitement Stomping means: fear Hopping means: sadness etc. Example of scenario - Dad buys you the toy you have been asking for months. 2. Students will play a game where one student will perform actions as an animal. The other students will guess what animal it is. Student who guesses correctly will then be the one to perform.
