After Spring Break, we will dive into all things Farm. I LOVE doing a farm unit! There are so many wonderful activities, songs, and books that I get totally consumed in it. We begin the unit with Oviparous Animals and then just go from there. I've added some chick and egg worksheets, but I thought why create a separate post, so they are included here. You will see that books and activities are not really "farm" per se that is because I am easily side tracked...IE- we start talking about pigs and the next thing you know we do a mini unit on The 3 Little Pigs.
I'm not sure what is going on with Scribd...the pictures don't look very good on here, but I did go through and click on them, they seem to be fine once you go to Scribd.
I hope you find things that you can use! Maybe this post will get me to 200 followers...A*MAZING!

Books we read
I normally find pictures to post here; however, I do the farm unit for almost an entire month...there are just too many books to find all the pictures! I am going to list them out, and I am positive that I will forget many! Forgive me :-) Also, upon further inspection of my book list, it seems as though I am a tad heavy on the pigs...I may need to adjust this at some point.

Little Red Hen Sight Word Scramble Worksheet
For the Spin, Read, and Write, I give each student a paperclip and a sharpened pencil to use as their spinner. It saves a ton of time versus the paper fastener and paperclip.

This is our Farm Journal. Every few days at the beginning of the unit, we focus on something specific on a farm. Students then write what they know about on the corresponding page.

The Charlotte's Web Counting by 2's is similar to the President's Day strips we made in February. Students color, cut, and glue the pieces to a sentence strip. We use these as we sing Jack Hartmann's Counting by 2's.
