Farm Time Fun

Next week my classroom will turn into a farm. We will use the ideas contained within our new unit: Farm Time Fun!




This unit, Farm Time Fun, is strategically linked to the Common Core Standards. it is divided into areas of literature, music, art, literacy, math, worksheets, science, creative writing, word wall, and guided reading. The activities are clearly written, easy to use, and need limited amounts of preparation. The lessons (games or activities) included are scripted. They are written in a format that can be easily taught by the teacher or readily handed off to a parent volunteer or a classroom aide with complete confidence that objectives of the lesson will be reached.
