Bring the farm into your sessions with this easy and adaptable craft! With a few supplies and a little preparation, it’s easy to make it come together.
What you need:
- paper plates (one for each child)
- white, pink, black, and brown construction paper
- black marker
What to do for each cow:
- Cut two ears out of white paper.
- Cut a large pink oval for the nose and two pink pieces to go in the middle of the ears.
- Cut two horns from the brown paper.
- Cut 4-5 small, random black shapes for spots.
- Have the students earn pieces for completing speech and/or language tasks.
- Let them glue the pieces on and draw the eyes, nostrils, and mouth with a marker.
- Articulation practice – Give the students a piece after correct productions of their target sounds.
- Initial /k/ or /m/ sounds – Give the students a piece for each correct production of “cow” or “moo”.
- Language skills practice – The students earn a piece of their cow for completing each language task (e.g., naming four farm animals, describing an animal using adjectives).
- Counting practice – Each time the students add a spot, they count how many are on their cow.
