Old MacDonald had a Farm, E-I-E-I-O!

Whoever came up with this song did a great thing for the kids at New Day- they all love it! Its great to sing, its great to do actions to and great to learn sign language to!

Anyone that spends time in the upstairs playroom knows that Annabel loves this song; she can often be heard saying ‘E I E I O!’ If this leads to someone singing it for her, or better the song being played, she will reward us with a smile and sometimes a dance. Even the nannies (whose English is quite limited) know the E-I-E-I-O song!

Noah and Zoey come to therapy with Lillian before pre-school each morning. They always seem to have fun; practicing signing together and learning new words. Lillian has some great signing DVDs, and one of them includes Old MacDonald’s farm. Below is a video of the three of them singing and signing along- can you work out which animals Old MacDonald has on his farm?
