FARM WEEK in our classroom...
We had eggs delivered to school this week. They were kept in incubators. The students were able to watch the chicks hatch, then eventually hold the babies.
The PM class cut out farm animals and made their own farm.
The AM class cut out their farm animals and listened to some positional word directions. GREAT JOB listening.
Smart Board Learning
Do I belong on the farm? Is an animal sort. When it's the students turn they get to come up and sort the animal. They get to decide whether the animal belongs on the farm or not. It's a great way for me to see if the kids are grasping the concept.
We've done this sort of activity with many themes in our class.
The kids always love playing on the Smart Board.

( I know, 2 in one post...I told you we used to Smart Board a lot).
Each child found their name and moved it to the animal graph, choosing their favorite farm animal. When we were done we counted. HORSE was the class favorite.
