We’ve been having such a good time with our farm unit. We read Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Farm, by Joy Cowley, on Monday and Tuesday, and the children have asked to read it again every day since. I guess you could say they have a slight obsession with the Mrs. and her silly animals. In this story, the animals flee the farm in order to get out of a good scrubbing.
“No more washing!” they say.
The animals make their way into the city where adventure ensues. My kids really enjoy the part where the animals find themselves in a hardware store and make a mess with the paint. So I am hoping that they will also enjoy thumb printing their own splattered pigs.
