Farm Lesson plans
Berenstain Bears Down on the Farm
By Stan & Jan Berenstain
We started off the week by reading Berenstain Bears Down on the Farm by Stan & Jan Berenstain. I love how this book captures all of the chores that farmers do in a day, from milking the cow to picking vegetables to feeding the chickens. Surprisingly, what actually happens on a farm is a topic not found in many farm books for kids, and that is why I love this book.
Click, Clack, Peep!
By Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin
There’s a new baby duck on the farm who is keeping all of the farm animals awake at night! The barnyard animals try everything to get the new baby to sleep before just going outside to get some peace and quiet. Finally, Duck comes up with a plan to get the baby duck to sleep in Click, Clack, Peep! by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
Mrs. Wishy Washy
By Joy Cowley
Mrs. Wishy Washy loves to keep her farm animals clean, even though they don’t necessarily love bath time. We read several Mrs. Wishy Washy books by Joy Cowley this week. I just love the simplicity of this one!
Also, we set up a ridiculously fun sensory experience with muddy animals that the kiddos had to scrub, which went perfectly with this farm book for preschoolers.
No Sleep for the Sheep
Farm Books for Preschoolers
Our next farm book for preschoolers is No Sleep for the Sheep by Karen Beaumont. The only thing the sheep wants is a good night’s rest, but the farm animals keep coming into the barn and interrupting this sheep’s sleep. Each animal gets bigger and louder and unfortunately, there’s no sleep for the sheep.
The Little Red Hen
By Paul Galdone
We finished up the week of farm books for preschoolers with a classic tale called The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone. The little red hen gets no help from the dog, cat, or mouse when planting and harvesting the wheat. She gets no help when making flour and baking a cake. But who wants to help her eat the cake? You guessed it! Such a great lesson for anyone, but especially for my little cake lover.
