Alright, so we sorta took a week off! I think we're ready to get back to it though! :) I LOVE teaching my kids and it brings an ability to share some really special moments together!

So here's what we've got this week...

Song: The Farmer in the Dell
Poem: Little Boy Blue

Discuss what animals live on a farm! Pull the "Barnyard Eggs" out of the bucket. (Use later to talk about baby animals!)

Read Noisy Animals and discuss the noises the animals make! (Sing "Old MacDonald")

Divide the animals into two groups on a t-chart: 4 legs and 2 legs

Read The Farmer in the Dell and discuss all the responsibilities of a farmer. Read Farm Chores!

Write a poem together - "Hello Farm"
Hello Farm!
Hello _____, _____, and ______.
Hello _____, _____
Hello _____, _____, and ______.
Hello Farm!

Pretend to be farmers and play with our animals!

Farm Visit - We're visiting a "farm" this week with a bunch of other homeschool families! We're going to Rehoboth Ranch here in Gville! Our tour will include collecting eggs, milking goats, and so much more! :) I think it will be AWESOME!

As we're visiting this farm, we'll think about using our five senses as we look around! When we get home, I have an awesome book called A Trip to the Farm that the kiddos will get to write and color about their trip!

Discuss the things that come from farms! Read What Comes from the Farm? and How Do We Get the Milk We Drink?

Read At the Farm and wrap up the unit! Draw a picture of an animal inside a barn.

My "goal" (besides having a blast with my kiddos) is to capture some of this fun stuff on video!!! I make NO PROMISES! :)
