We started our farm unit this week. It’s very academic and integrates science, math, and writing, (blah blah blah-it’s Saturday don’t care at the moment but I will on Monday) but let’s face it…it goes with my room theme and that makes me CRAZY HAPPY.
My big books are a barren wasteland at this point in the year. How to keep them interested in these for an entire year I have yet to figure out…but the cuteness remains.
Anyway…I wanted to integrate more writing into our Farm Unit. It is much more science and math oriented so I created a little farm foldable. Don’t be fooled…it is barely a foldable. It is almost not a foldable, but you can see in exhibit A that there is a tiny bit of folding involved. Therefore…foldable it will be!

We made a brace map of sorts to introduce the new theme and organize our thoughts. I didn’t rewrite this bad boy so it is au naturale!
To go along with all things farm we are finally going to “dig” into Seeds, Soil, and Plants. I LOVE this unit because I am one of those people that totally thinks plants have feelings and love me back.
I love watching my students LOVE their little plant babies.
That’s why I have to plant so many extra to be sure everyone has a living plant by the end of it.
It is too devastating for me…the whole circle of life an survival of the fittest. NOT COOL. I can’t take it.
Swersty (my beloved librarian) came back from her Librarian’s conference and she brought me this!!!
