Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
Click Clack Moo Activity with Shapes
1. Have your child draw a picture of a very large cow from the story Click Clack Moo. An alternative is to PRINT the Cow Image from mycutegraphics.com.
Cut out the cow outline and place the cow on two sheets of paper folded in half to create stands for the cow. Cut small slits in both the folded sheet and on the cow at the bottom to connect pieces.
2. Next take your construction paper and cut out 8 rectangles to form 8 blankets from the story. The rectangles should be large enough to lay over the cows body. You can make them from different colors for even more fun.
Cut the edges of the blankets with a little fridge like you would do with grass on paper too, makes it feel a little more like blankets from the story Click Clack Moo.
3. You can use crayons to draw the shapes with older kids. We used a different color for each shape.
Or you can use construction paper to make some shapes. Your toddler or preschooler will most likely need you to do this activity. Cut out small circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, ovals and you can even add diamonds, hearts, and stars if your child has a pretty good understanding of shapes as well.
4. On white pieces of paper write with your child….
Dear Farmer Brown,
I want a circle blanket.
Have them choose from the shape words as they write the sentences.
You can use the shape terms circle, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, diamond, star, and heart.
5. PLAY! Have your child mix up the blankets and the sentences and have them pick the matches to place onto the cow. They are working on shape recognition and sight word recognition as they play this game.
