Down on the Farm!

I am having a BLAST learning about the farm with my class.  They are obsessed with animals, and we are focusing on a couple of different animals each week.  The past two weeks, we have learned about cows and pigs.  Take a look at some of the photos of my kids using printables, centers, and crafts from my Welcome to the Farm Unit and Crop Unit.


I think my favorite center in the Farm Unit is the "Pigs in the Mud Addition."  The kids pick two cards, add the mud spots, and fill in the addition sentence.



Of course, we had to make muddy pigs to keep true to our farm theme!  



I gathered the students on the rug, and we brainstormed what different animals live on the farm.  They drew the pictures in the circle map, and wrote the names around the animals.


When they finished their work early, they could complete a "read and write the room" activity, where they hunted for different farm animals around the room.  


This week, we focused on learning about cows.  Check out this tree map...


And my favorite part of the day was making this cow craftivity.  Check out the little video below...
