Fun on the Farm!

We had so much fun learning about farm animals.  We made a chart to compare and contrast sheep and pigs.






We learned a lot about cows.  As a culmination to our farm animal unit we made our own ice cream in a bag!  The kids were able to see firsthand how matter can change from a liquid to a solid.  MOOOO-velous!  



We read some of our favorite stories, Mrs. Wishy Washy by Joy Cowley, and Who's in the Shed? by Brenda Parkes are great stories for Shared Reading. Who's in the Shed? is a great story for making Predictions based on clues from the story.  




In Reader's Workshop we've been learning that great reader's make connections to stories they read.  This week we read, The Flea's Sneeze and Baachoo!  and compared the stories. 


Cow glyphs! 


 Which apple is your favorite?




The best hi-light this month was going to Grandparent's Day at my sweet Madison's preschool.  Isn't she adorable!?

  5. Susan, Thanks so much for your kind words! I'm glad you are happy with the things you've purchased from me. I always worry when I make and post an item that people will think it is a waste of their hard earned money! :)
    I'm new at "blogging" but I'm getting the hang of it and I hope to update it every weekend.

  6. You must be an artist to create such cute animals! Would you care to share your tricks to someone who doesn't have an artistic bone in her body? Thanks!
