We were happy as "pigs" in mud creating this farm unit for you.  We decided to try something new and separate the math and literacy units.   Ohhh...and the most fun we had creating these units...making our own farm clip art.  Kiss your brain KPM Doodles!  
Here are pictures of some of the activities you will find in our farm units:

Rhyme Until The Cows Come Home
The students will choose a cow, color in a cow on the recording sheet, and say the picture out loud.  Then the student will write three more words that rhyme with the picture on the cow.

Welcome to our Funny Farm
The students will read the sentence and find the farm animal given and write how to spell the farm animal word on the blank line.  Then the student will color the animal at the end of the sentence the same color.  

I'm in the MOO-d for Middle Sounds
The students will choose a cow and color the cow head on the recording sheet of matching color.  In the circle below write the middle sound heard in the picture. 

Hay There...Count by 2's
The students will put the hay stacks in order from 2 - 20 counting by 2's.  Then write the answers on the recording sheet.

Horsin' Around with ...Numbers
The students will write the numbers in correct order on the recording sheet.  You can use three numbers that are mixed up or a number in the middle and lines on each side.  Your choice!

Barnyard Boogie Addition
The students will roll the farm animal die.  Using the farm animal rolled the students will look at the key and write the number in the box.  The students will roll again and write the number in the second box.  Add the numbers together and write the answer in the barn. 

Look What's Sprouting Up!
The studnets will roll the cube or draw a card and color in the vegtable on the verticle and the horizontal graph.  If a student rolls a snail, he/she loses a turn.  Continue rolling until one of the vegtables reaches the top.  Then complete recording sheet questions.

Here is a fun farm freebie for you!
You will have to find four pictures for each vowel that the students will glue on the barn and write out the word.   Barn clip art by DJ Inkers

Please don't "hog" these fun centers and tell your friends where to find them. 

"Ewe" are loved if you leave a comment! Yes...We know some pictures are sideways.  We do not know why it does that...maybe you can tell us!

Thank you, Amber & LuAnn 


  1. Fun!!! We are doing a farm unit right now too!!


    Apples and ABC's

  2. These are adorable! My kids are working on skip counting by twos at the moment so that piece of work is just perfect! Perhaps I'll try to blow up the iectures of the haystacks and turn them into necklaces as well. The kids can put themselves back in order before they do the worksheet!

  3. Hello. Thanks for sharing all your awesome farm ideas. I was wondering where did you buy the large dice with the plastic sleeves? I know I saw it on someone's blog with the information of where to purchase, but can not remember where? Thanks, Lili

  4. I actually bought mine at the Kindergarten Conference in Las Vegas, but I don't recall the vendor's name. The link below does show the same set that I bought, so give them a try.

  5. Cute farm ideas! You need to orient your pictures after you download them onto your computer from your camera. Right after you download them off of your camera click on the jpg. picture number in the list and it will come up and look down below and you will see icons - two icons look like mountains to me - these are the icons that will allow you to rotate them. This way they are rotated before you download them when you are composing your post. Hope that helps. Also you can tell the previous commentor(sp?) that those dice with pockets can be purchased from the catalog "Really Good Stuff" you get two dice for $19.99. Hope I was helpful!


  6. I love your blog. When I visit, I think about the grade I left behind. I taught kinder for 13 years. I now teach second. I have a blog and I do add activities for kinder as well. Please visit when you have time. Have a blessed day.

  7. I am sooo glad that I just found your blog - it is amazing! We are just starting our farm unit and your activities will be perfect! I am new to blogging and look forward to following you!

  8. I LOVE the Look What's Sprouting Up graph!

    Y'alls blog is just amazing! I would love to be getting a 1st grader that came from your K class!

  9. I love your ideas for helping children focus on initial sounds and middle sounds. Incorporating those lessons into fun themes like "the farm" is a great way to keep them engaged. So clever! Thanks for sharing.
