I'm so excited about our farm unit this week as it is one of my FAVORITE units!
We started our unit off my learning about the many different jobs that a farmers has and then completed this chart:
After we discussed how God gave us all the animals for many reasons: Sheep- for their wool, cows- milk, chickens-eggs, etc.
I introduced the letter F, it's sounds, and objects that begin with it to the children. We also looked at the number 2 and all the different ways we can make it. After we learned a new sight word "to" and listened to it's song,https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=AhezumTwtko
The children started their roatation through jobs today. Here is a peek at them:
|Measuring Farm Animals|
|F for fish!|
|Pig Mud Spots- here the children are practicing one to one correspondences and writing numbers.|
|Barn Letters- here the children are practicing identifying and writing letters.|
The children also started their rotation to prayer center where we are discussing when and why we pray.
Yesterday we learned many fun facts about pigs:
1. They have an excellent senses of smell.
2. A pig's snout is an important tool for finding food, digging holes, and to senses what's around them.
3. Some people keep pigs as pets.
4. A group of pigs is called a herd.
5. A baby pig is a piglet.
6. They roll around in the mud to keep cool.
7. They talk to other oigs by squealing (and we had to practice that noise).
8. They drink a lot of water.
After the children told me a few facts that they remembered, I wrote in on a sentence strip and taped it to our big pig.
Then the children colored a paper plate pink and we made a pig. Oink Oink!
I can't wait for the children to meet the goats later. I will take TONS of pictures!
