Old Mac Donald Had A Farm

Young children love farm animals. They probably learn about or hear the song "Old Macdonald had a Farm" at a very early age. It may sound like simple toddler fun but learning this vocabulary at a young age actually develops pre-academic and social skills.

Farm animals and their sounds have been a much-loved teaching tool for a very long time.

As early as 1658, John Amos Comenius published what was considered the first children's book which included illustrations of various farm animals with text describing the animal sounds.

Starting on this path early, and simply seeing the animals in books and hearing the sounds that they make, prepares them for preschool and beyond.

The children at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach are loving the animals and the stories too, allowing for opportunities to talk about animals and their sounds. As you can see....we start them early!
