Tie-in Activity: Dog Training
Try a doggie twist on the game Simon Says. Let one child be the “trainer” and one or more children be the “doggies.” Have the trainer say “good dog” before giving out commands such as “sit” or “shake” so that the doggies know to follow the commands. If the trainer doesn't say “good dog,” then the doggies shouldn't follow the command.
