Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

Ever met a cow that could type? Or a cow who left notes for the farmer? Well get ready to read a silly story about some who do just that!

According to Scholastic, the DRA level is between 20-24 which would make this a 2nd or 3rd grade level book. I think that sounds just right. 

A fun activity for my students to do after reading this book would be to write a letter to Farmer Brown!!! They could write it from the cow's perspective, from their own, or from another animal's perspective. This would really bring out their creative writing skills.

Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

Lexile Level: AD470L

This picture book by Doreen Cronin tells the story of Farmer Brown and his very opinionated farm animals. Farmer Brown's cows have many complaints about their living conditions and use a typewriter to send letters detailing their issues. This inspires the chickens to do the same and results in Farmer Brown having to write letters to his animals in order for them to do their jobs. This book can be used with early elementary students as a read aloud. The author's use of repetitive phrases would be great to build the students' phonemic awareness. The book also would be perfect to introduce persuasive writing to students. Students could connect to the text and could respond by writing letters to someone, such as their parents or their principle, to get something they want or need.

Click Clack Moo: Cow's That Type by Doreen Cronin is a book about cows that get a hold of an old type writer and decide to go on strike against Farmer Brown. They make continuous requests/demands (for example electric blankets) in order to give Farmer Brown their milk. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and It is listed as an AD160L on the Lexile scale. I would have my students write letter to the Farmer Brown making a request from a different animal. I would make it clear that the students could choose any other animal they would see at a farm except a cow. This is a super cute book that i will have on my bookshelf for sure.

This book kept me giggling. My favorite part was when the cows would type on the type writers to write the farmer and the farmer could not figure out who was writing him letters. I think the cows were very smart going about getting what they wanted from the farmer. The activities that  I can do with my students would be cause and effect, cow puppets, or writing activities.
