Learning and Discovery
Wednesday we had some fun dancing time, then moved on to a couple exciting rotations! At one rotation, we had a horse maze. We practiced galloping and even had a horse to ride as we raced to put all the beanbags in the bucket. We also got to roll like a pig in mud (including somersaults!) We experimented with weight by filling eggs with different substances and tested to see which ones rolled down the ramp the fastest! Then we had a Farm Roll Round-Up. We rolled cows right back into their farm stalls.
On Thursday we had an assessment with letters- we drew our uppercase and lowercase letters on white boards. We also practiced our numbers by rolling a dice to try to win!
At our other tables, we got to dig through dirt to find different farm animals, identify the type of animal, and clean them using sponges and toothbrushes. We experimented with milk and dish soap to see how they interacted with food coloring. We also practiced writing our name, and counting the number of items we found in different colored eggs. To practice our alphabet, we glued all different kinds of farm words on our paper in alphabetical order! Another exciting activity helped us practice our letters by writing farm words in mud!

Our gross motor activities were a blast! One game we played, we'd roll two dice, and it would tell us an animal and an action. From galloping like horses, to sounding like a pig, they had a great time! We used fly swatters to get our sheep balloons all back in their pen, and we found different farm animals in their pins with a hallway farm maze!
