We’re on Our Way, We’re on Our Way…On our Way to Mrs. Kilburn’s Farm!

Can you tell that we’ve been learning about the farm?  My class just finished this unit last week and we had an ABSOLUTE blast learning about farm animals!

Here is a picture of our farm mural complete with a tractor ride–too cute!  The idea originally came from Kimberly Jordano’s website Kinder by Kim.  There are a TON of wonderful ideas here :).  So–here’s my recreation of the farm mural:

We also had a lot of fun completing some non-standard measurement activities.

Julie Lee from Mrs. Lee’s Kindergarten completely inspired me to make this farm animal station activity (she always has the best station activity ideas :)):

I copied the clip-art of the different animals on various colors of construction paper and then had students complete and color their worksheets to match.  The clip-art is from DJ Inkers.  If you would like copies of the worksheets then you can download them here:

We also read a couple of different versions of the Little Red Hen and painted Little Red Hens :):

We discussed how we can be like the Little Red Hen (text to self connections) and brainstormed our answers.  Students later completed the writing prompt.  You can get the prompt here and the bulletin board sign:

We also had a lot of fun learning about the various animals that live on a farm.  We sang the song “The Animals in the Barn” and completed this pocket chart activity:

This song is part of my TpT Farm Mini-Unit available for purchase

We also graphed the farm animals that we liked.  This is also a part of my Farm Mini-Unit available for purchase from TpT.  Here is a picture:

Here are some other sample images from my On the Farm Mini-Unit available to purchase from TpT:

    Thanks for sharing such great farm lessons! We are just about to compare zoo and farm in our language arts and CENTERS time. Do you take field trips with your class to either?
