Down On The Farm

  1. 1. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program Down on the Farm SONGS Take Me Out to the Barnyard (tune: Take Me Out to the Ballgame) by Judy Hall Take me out to the barnyard. Take me out there right now. Show me the cows, pigs and horses, too. I hear an oink and a neigh and a moo. There are chickens laying their eggs. If they don't lay it's a shame. Oh, it's one, two, three eggs today, And I'm glad I came. Farm Sounds (tune: Wheels on the Bus) By John Saltsman The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo, Moo, moo, moo -- moo, moo, moo. Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  2. 2. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo, All around the farm. Other verses: ... pigs in the pen go oink, oink, oink ... hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck ... rooster on the fence goes cock-a-doodle-do ... ducks in the pond go quack, quack, quack ... lambs on the hill go baa, baa, baa ... bunnies in the hutch go (silently wiggle nose with finger) Pocket Chart Activities Who Lives On a Farm? You can use die cuts for the animals and for the word "farm" in this activity. The farm is represented by a red barn. You can make individual student books of a story, from sentence strips with the shapes glued on. This is an outstanding activity for teaching children tracking and one-to-one correspondance. Make the following sentence on a sentence strip, leaving a space to place an animal die cut, and room for the red barn at the end. I make a matching set of strips and cut them apart, so children can match text in the pocket chart, or take words to their desks for writing. A _____ lives on a (barn diecut goes here). I use pig, cow, lamb, horse, dog, cat, mouse, duck, hen, rooster, rabbit, frog, and fish Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  3. 3. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program The Giving Farm By Vicki Witcher Hens give eggs. Pigs give ham. Cows give milk. Strawberries give jam. Bees give honey. Goats give cheese. Farms give food, I'd like some, please. Nursery Rhyme Innovations Kids love putting their names -- and each others' -- in the pocket chart. Write each student's name on 1 or 2 cards for these activities, and also have both "his" and "her" cards available. (Child's name) has lost her/his sheep And doesn't know where to find them. Just leave them alone And they will come home, Dragging their tails behind them. (Child's name) had a little lamb, Little lamb, Little lamb, (Child's name) had a little lamb, Its fleece was white as snow. (Child's name)(Child's name) quite contrary How does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockled shells And little maids all in a row. Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  4. 4. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program Round and round the haystack Went (Child's name) the mouse. One step, Two steps, In his/her little house. Great idea to use One, Two, Buckle My Shoe in the pocket chart during the farm unit. It helps the students learn to read number words, and it even has a big fat hen in it! And don't forget to make a pocket chart and big book innovation called Red Barn, Red Barn, What Do You See? using all the colors, animals, and foods from the farm! Five Cows All Black and White (Tune: 5 Little Speckled Frogs) Five cows all black and white Chewed their cud from day to night So they could give milk sweet and pure. Squirt! Squirt! One left the barn one day So she could find more hay Then there were 4 cows all black and white. Moo! Moo! Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  5. 5. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program Ten Clean Squeaky Pigs Ten pigs so squeaky clean Cleanest pigs you've ever seen! Wanted to go outside and play Snort! Snort! One jumped into the mud Landed with a great big THUD! (slap thighs) Then there were nine clean squeaky pigs. Oink! Oink! 5 White and Fluffy Sheep Five white and fluffy sheep In the pasture fast asleep Their wool kept them cozy all night long. Snore! Snore! The farmed slipped away with one And sheared the wool till he was done Then there were 4 white fluffy sheep. Baa! Baa! The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! the wolf insists he's innocent one of our favorite stories year after year Of course, you'll also use the poem This Little Piggy in your pocket chart and make a class book from it, too. Here's an adaptation the kids love: Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  6. 6. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program Little piggy (child's name) went to market. Little piggy (child's name) stayed home. Little piggy (child's name) had roast beef. Little piggy (child's name) had none. And little piggy (child's name) went "Wee, wee, wee!" all the way home! Easy Farm Games Children like to play The Farmer in the Dell and Duck Duck Goose. We also can relay races carrying eggs on spoons (I use plastic eggs for less mess). Bean bag relays and bean bag toss games are also fun ... try tossing beanbags in a milking pail. Let your students wear cowboy bandanas for extra pizazz! MATH ACTIVITIES Math Skills - Graphing Favorite Farm Animals: Have the children show their pictures of their favorite farm animal and share with the class whether they have seen a real one (and if so, where). On the whiteboard, keep a tally of the classroom's farm animal favorites OR have the children hang their pictures on the bulletin board. Pass out the Favorite Farm Animal Graph to the children Favorite Farm Animal Graph Have the children use the whiteboard tally marks or visit the bulletin board to make their own tally sheet and fill in their graphs. Review the graphs in front of the class and have the children self assess their work. Ask the children if they know which is the most popular farm animal in the class based on the results of the graphing exercise.( See printables) Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  7. 7. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program Math Skills - Estimation: Fill a container with a given number of a farm related item (toy farm animals, unpopped popcorn or kernels of wheat). 100 of the item is a good number the container should be an appropriate size that the item nearly fills the container show the container to the children and tell them how many of the item are inside Fill a second, third and fourth container with the same item: assuming you used 100 in the first container -- fill the second container with 25 assuming you used 100 in the first container -- fill the third container with 50 assuming you used 100 in the first container -- fill the fourth container with 150 NOTE: all of the containers should be identical Ask the children to estimate how many are in the second, third and fourth containers. Expansion: Fill different types of containers with 50 of the item. Ask the children to estimate the item. Afterwards, discuss whether it was easier or harder to estimate the item when the container was the same or different. Creative Arts: Provide the children with a blank piece of paper or with one of our collage outlines (from simplest to most difficult): Tomato Crop Fields Barn Barnyard Provide the children with glue, scissors and a wide variety of collage materials. Examples: pieces of wool, string, ribbon and raffia cotton balls (great clouds!) fabric scraps tinfoil scraps old magazines old wrapping paper, construction paper or wallpaper scraps tissue paper in various colors Mtra. Graciela Bilat
  8. 8. Hans Christian Andersen School / Kinder Immersion Program felt or fun foam in various colors (you can get precut fun foam shapes with farm animals if you like) beans, popcorn, grains, uncooked noodles and rice try scrunching up some of your materials or ripping it instead of cutting it. Have the children "color" their designs by gluing on the collage materials You can premake an example to provide inspiration for younger children Mtra. Graciela Bilat
