Verbs are everywhere…and you’re kindergartners are everywhere! Need quick mentor texts with these active words? This is it. The books will have a small verb FREEBIE and some ideas for sharing these with your students.
The Cow Loves Cookies…who doesn’t? This is such a cute book. It has a great rhythm and you find yourself routing for the cow! The book starts with the farmer feeding his animals. The horse gets hay. The chickens get feed. The geese get corn. The pigs get the gooey glop. The dog gets doggie treats. BUT the cow loves cookies. And, by the way, the farmer loves cookies and… MILK. Everyone is happy.
Vocabulary focus: VERBS
The FREEBIE today contains a farmyard animal poster. Teachers should blow up the page 200% and print. During the read aloud, ask the students to listen for the verbs in the story. After the first read, use the vocabulary list above to match the verbs with the animals. During independent writing time or a writing center, ask students to use verbs from the story in their writing.
Enjoy the book and enjoy the cow loves cookies FREEBIE or the picture below.
