In media class we talk all about books! We talk about concepts of print (title, author, etc) and we talk about story elements.  We really love to sing, and for this story element lesson, we learned a song about setting (see below). Then we read The Cow Loves Cookies where the setting was a farm. Next, kindergarteners drew their own farm yard setting and chose the proper animals, to put on the farm. Here are some examples!

"The Setting Song"

(sung to the tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down")
