Learn the game “The Farmer in the Dell”

Option 1: copy 1 set of the picture cards. Cut them out.
Give 1 card to each of 8 children.
Hand them out face down so you can't see what you're giving and they can't fuss about what they're getting. It's even more fun if ask the children to close their eyes while you give out the cards.
Sing and dramatize the game. The farmer starts and 'chooses' the child who's holding the wife card.
The wife 'chooses' the one holding the child card.

Option 2: copy a set of cards for all the students. Then, they sequence the cards as they listen to the song.
