Who would think that cleaning would be so much fun? It is when you have the right songs to sing. This unit included the song "Jaaroo, Jaaroo, Jaaroo Bokon" to the tune of "Row, Row, Row,Your Boat". As well the Persian/Farsi version of "Pat-a-Cake" and "I'm a Little Teapot". Lyrics to all three are available in the House Unit Handout Below.
Drawing houses are a great way to teach kids basic shapes. The kids learned "moraba'" aka "chaahaar goosh" (square), "mostateel" (rectangle) and "mosalas" aka "seh goosh" (triangle) while drawing houses on whiteboards. Also fun is to take large diaper boxes, cut out doors and windows and have the kids pretend to be a "naghaash" (painter).
