Getting Started in English
Let’s Go to the Farm is an activity totally performed in English and aimed at kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd-grade students.
A visually appealing set lets children’s imagination run wild and takes them to a farm where anything can happen.
During the activity, children are surprised by props magically coming to life in front of their very eyes.
Indeed, a fun lamb cartoon is drawn on a drawing board, and suddenly it moves the eyes and even talks!
In another scene, a length of rope wondrously becomes a cow and its milk magically turns into a big white handkerchief.
From beginning to end, Let’s Go to the Farm is plenty of surprises, e.g. the sudden appearance of Nock the Duck, a crazy duck on wheels which rush among the kids looking for water and making them laugh out loud.
There is also time for tenderness; children meet a cute white bunny, and they join Ruskus in singing the old American nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb.
In brief, a beautiful show in English plenty of cute animals, magic, music, and clowning!
