Farm-The Latter Half

Hello friends!  This was our last week learning all about farms and farm animals.  We also concluded our unit with the annual Farm Day at BSLK.  Mrs. Estes does a fabulous job putting it all together!  Our whole school enjoys the day.  To say the least, I'm pooped...so let the pictures begin!

Coin roll

 Telling time and drawing the correct time on the clocks


 We reviewed odd and even numbers with higher numbers...to 18 because we had 18 eggs.




 I used the barns again from Target to practice counting to 30...I used die-cut foam mini animals as counters...(hint-color code and it will be easy to keep things from getting mixed up plus it's a quick visual to see if they "did it all".


Here we wrote the sight word, color word, and the number after counting mud spots on the pig




 "Maa"th addition
These are the flowers in a kid version from our plants unit...the kids always turn out MUCH cuter than my sample
I forgot to snap a pic several weeks ago of the March Problem Solving unit from Kathleen Pedersen...these are great.  Check 'em out!

Our circle map of FARMS

 I got this adorable idea from a teacher at school...It's Farmer Tig wearing a Wig

The cutest goats you ever did see!!

Our Farm Fact Book






We read The Very Busy Spider and made a flow map


How much is your name worth?  This was a bit challenging, but several of my kiddos did an awesome job counting those coins!

If you don't have this book...get it!  So darn cute!
We made "silly faces" and wrote about who makes us laugh!





I love these big animals from Kim Jordano at Kinderbykim so...guess what?  We made them too!



We read Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm and made these cute little things!
We practiced kid writing and wrote this poem...and they all have their own too.

  39. Wow! You are such an inspiration! I love your ideas and especially all your counting & math centers. I would love to get copies of all these great centers and recording sheets, if you are willing to share them. I saw that you do not "sell" them, but have put the Donors button up. I would be happy to contribute to that. You should think about creating a page with the links to all these great downloads--you could put your donors choose button on that page and save yourself a lot of time and get your "wishful" projects paid for at the same time!
    I can't wait to get my copies!
    Thanks, Cathy
