Down on the Farm

We learned all about the farm this week. We made many great crafts and did some fun activities. See all about our fun "Farm Day" in the video below!

One of our favorite crafts this week were making chickens from our footprints! The students are all very ticklish! And they all thought it was so "cool" to paint their feet.

We also made cows and learned about the many great foods we get from the diary cow.

On a farm farmers get very dirty. They have to plant crops and dig in the dirt, so we ate some dirt, mud and worms (pudding, oreos, and gummy worms).

One of our favorite games this week was a guessing game with the different farm animals. Each student had a farm animal pinned on the back of their shirt, they had to ask questions to their friends and try to figure out which farm animal they were. This was loads of fun!

Farm animals love the mud and mud-puddles! We created our on mud scenes and wrote a sentence about our favorite muddy farm animal.

Everyone enjoyed listening to the book "The Three Little Pigs."

We especially enjoyed the book "Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket."

Students wrote in their journals about their favorite thing about the farm.

Looking for the hidden farm pictures.

Mama Jane came a shared with us a great book about the farm and some interesting facts about farm life.

On Friday we had a special "Farm Day." We dressed in farm clothes and enjoyed some farm inspired activities.

Sack Race!

Egg Race!

We then enjoyed a picnic with "chick-feed" (chex mix) and "pigs-in-a-blanket".

Earlier in the week we learned about the diary cow and that many great foods that come from the cow. One of our favorite diary foods is ice cream! So we made homemade ice cream. It was a fun process, we made it in a ziploc bag and took turns shaking the bag until it made ice cream. It turned out great!

Shake, shake, shake!

Magic! It's ice cream!

It was delicious!

Happy Birthday, Austin!

Happy Birthday, Briana!
