Farm Animal Research & LIteracy Park



Happy Sunday all.   We are super happy over here as football started today.  There's lots of screaming, cheering and unncessary cursing on my husband's end.  And I am over here all excited because I finished my newest and latest pack!  This really took me allll summer to make.  It is beyond difficult to create and watch a baby at the same time.  How do mommy's do it?  I am exhausted just thinking about doing that again. LOL

The inspiration behind my newest creation was my son's first birthday party.  It was farm themed and we rented farm animals and had pony rides.  And I was like I can totally make this a cute unit for my first graders when I get back to school in September.  Hooray!  I finished.  Here is it.



The animals included in this set are sheep, goats, donkey's horses, cows and pigs.

This pack is loaded with farm animal research and literacy printables. Help your little ones build literacy concepts by learning about each farm animal. You can use these activities as morning work, center or buddy work, early finishers and even homework. Throw these in a bin in each group and have them complete it as a reward. The printables are cute, engaging and so much fun. Your little ones will enjoy learning about each farm animal. The farm animals in this set are: cow, pig, horse, donkey, sheep and goat. This would be perfect to implement before or after a trip to the farm.

Here are some of my favorite activities..




I love that these printables can be used in a variety of ways.  You can print and toss them in a bin for whatever you'd like.  It's that easy.  I know my little ones will like the riddle sheet because it will definitely get them thinking and talking.  Would totally be fun to do as a group.




Ever heard of "What does the fox say"?  Well this is similar to that.  Be prepared to have a lot of animal noise making for this lesson. =)






This is a really good opinion writing piece.  The first printable explains the differences, from there they get to write about which animal they letter better.  I even offer a printable to compare/contract horses and donkeys.  It's a great way to work on student's writing, brainstorming, opinions and more





Gather your information from what you learned about these animals and put your mind to work with these printables.  Great way to see what they can remember from the lesson.
