Farm Week

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, 

The children started their roatation through jobs today. Here is a peek at them:
Cow Glyphs

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!
