Farm Centers and Activities

This week we're finishing up our zoo centers and activities plus reptiles, but I wanted to show you our new farm centers and some of our activities we did a couple of weeks ago.
By the way, have you ever heard of the Mobile Dairy?  It comes to our school every year and it's such a great opportunity for our kids.  Click HERE to go check it out!  The kids love seeing how cows really are milked plus they share tons of important info. about cows and dairy farms!
Also, our school has this huge farm day, thanks to Mrs. Henderson, where our students rotate to tons of fun stations to learn all about plants, animals, and farms.  We plant a flower, make a "beanie baby" to wear around our neck, work on the farm fishing, painting the barn, building the fence, shearing the sheep, riding the horse, milking the cows, & gathering eggs. We got to see farm animals, learn about horses, hear Mrs. Wishy Washy tell her story and much more.  :)




I love reading the little fact books about animals to my kiddos.  They are always so interested in the cool facts they hear that they may not have heard otherwise.  So, we made these little charts to help us with our learning.

We made these little cutie patooties.  What I love about them SO much is that they are super FAST and so adorable hanging up!  This way, we spend more time working on writing our facts and really concentrating on spacing, sight words, sounding out words, and punctuation.
You can find these and more HERE in my Faces of the Farm pack with Jamie Mayas.
I just love watching them grow as writers!


Guess what?  I made NEW farm centers.  My older ones were a little outdated and not really hard enough for my little group this year.  :)  That's a good problem!
So, below is what I came up with!  You can find these FARM CENTERS HERE.



























That pretty much sums up our farm week.  :)

  8. Has anyone ever come up with unacceptable words in your quack quack word families? Or is it just me and the way my mind works!
