Ten galloping horses, (hold up ten fingers)

And five were brown. (hold up five fingers on other hand)
They galloped up, (slap up toward top of thighs)
They galloped down, (slap down toward ankles)
Ten galloping horses, (hold up ten fingers)
Came through town. (slap hands on legs)

Play and Write: Feed the Animals craft
We retold The Cow Loves Cookies by feeding the animals. Kids continued to make up verses for
Mary Had a Colorful Lamb when they picked a color for their sheep. Making zig zags for grass and
adding chocolate chips to the cookies gave them some fun writing practice.
