Dogs and Cats / Bugs

Dogs and Cats / Bugs

The two major themes on this cassette are about favorite pets and common insects. Each theme has a group of songs with catchy tunes and words that suggest fun activities. An informative guide gives further ideas to enrich and extend these experiences.

With “Dogs and Cats”, children will learn that these animals are very different from each other. By learning how they behave, children can best relate to them and take care of their favorite pets.

With “Bugs”, children discover how strange and different these creatures can be. Bugs can also be quite different from each other.

Learning through “themes” can serve as a gateway to other learning. Through animals and insects, we can learn about seasons, environment, art, social studies, and much more. We can also begin to build skills for understanding and accepting differences.
