Imitating Cries Of Animals

(A simple game for the very smallest children.)
One child comes out to stand in front of the class and says:--
Listen to the cry I make,
Then, if you the trouble take,
You may guess my name.
He then imitates the cry of some animal, the 'bark' of a dog, the 'mew'
of a cat, or the 'crowing' of the cock, and the children who wish to
answer hold out the hand. The child who is allowed to give the name of
the animal represented by the cry comes out (if the answer is correct)
and makes the cry of another animal, first repeating the lines as
before. The following are some of the cries that the children may be
able to imitate, 'cluck, cluck' (hen), 'quacking' (duck), 'hissing'
(goose), 'neighing' (horse), 'braying' (donkey), 'grunting' (pig),
'chirping' (bird) or talking like the parrot.
