CLICK, CLACK, MOO Cows That Type By Doreen Cronin

Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears
Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo.
At first he couldn’t believe his ears. Cows that type? Impossible!
Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo.
Then, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

Cows: Dear Farmer Brown,
The barn is very cold at night.
We’d like some electric blankets.
The Cows

It was bad enough the cows had found the old typewriter in the barn, now they wanted electric blankets!
“No way! No electric blankets.”, said Farmer Brown. So the cows went on strike. They left a note on the barn door.

Cows: Sorry. We’re closed. No milk today.
“No milk today!”,cried Farmer Brown. In the background, he heard the cows busy at work.

Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo.
The next day, he got another note:

Cows: Dear Farmer Brown,
The hens are cold too.
They’d like electric blankets.
The Cows

The cows were growing impatient with the farmer. They left a new note on the barn door.

Closed. No milk. No eggs.
“No eggs!”, cried Farmer Brown. In the background he heard them.
Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo.

“Cows that type. Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing? How can I run a farm with no milk and no eggs!”
Farmer Brown was furious. Farmer Brown got out his own typewriter.

Dear Cows and Hens:
There will be no electric blankets.
You are cows and hens.
I demand milk and eggs.
Farmer Brown

Duck was a neutral party, so he brought the ultimatum to the cows.
The cows held an emergency meeting. All the animals gathered around the barn to snoop, but none of them could understand Moo.
All night long, Farmer Brown waited for an answer.
Duck knocked on the door early the next morning. He handed Farmer Brown a note:

Dear Farmer Brown,
We will exchange our typewriter for electric blankets. Leave them outside
the barn door and we will send Duck over with the typewriter.
The Cows

Farmer Brown decided this was a good deal.
He left the blankets next to the barn door and waited for Duck to come with the typewriter.
The next morning he got a note:
Dear Farmer Brown,
The pond is quite boring. We’d like a diving board.
The Ducks
Click, clack, quack, Click, clack, quack. Clickety, clack, quack

Meet Teacher Elizabeth Forbes!

Teacher Elizabeth is an experienced ESL teacher who’s living in Canada. Check out the video above for teacher Elizabeth’s tips and advice!

Teaching at Landi is great because the class sizes are smaller, so our students receive more individual attention. As well the curriculum and the software is user-friendly, so it makes learning fun.

I’ve been able to help students progress by encouraging them to take more talk time and to help them overcome their fear of making mistakes. I like to take time out to listen to my students because it helps them see that learning languages can mean broadening their horizon and making new friends.

I love teaching because it’s a joy to see people overcome their timdiity and express themselves freely in a new language. Especially I love teaching children because we can help them see that learning is fun and that they’ll learn more through participatory learning.
