Down on the Farm

Here are a few things we did this week...

Our favorite book this week had to have been Mrs. Wishy Washy.  After reading the story we made mud.  Students loved putting their hands in the mud, well some of them did others just thought it was gross.  After we were done playing we made a "mud" map (our version of a bubble map).  My kiddos did a great job.  We then we used our "mud" map to write a mud poem.  We decorated the poem with the face of Mrs. Wishy Washy.

I just had to make this cow and my wonderful high school intern helped me with the pig.  The kids were so excited to get back from music and see a huge cow on the back wall. 

Another favorite book was The Cow that Said Oink.  My kids laughed all the way through this books.  They thought it was so funny that a cow would say "oink" and a pig would say "moo".  After reading the story we wrote descriptive words on post it notes and stuck them all over the cow. 

Music and poems are a big part of my classroom.  This week my kids loved listen to Jack Hartmann's Party on the Farm song.  They also loved these interactive poems.

What a great week!!! This has been one of my favorite units so far this year. Monday we are off to the pumpkin patch.
