THE FARM

This month we will learn how farms work, who lives in them and where they are located at.

We will learn about the farmer, who he is and what he does during the day in the farm.

We’ ll see he wakes up very early to milk the cows, feed the animals, pick up the hen’s eggs, plow the land with his tractor, fix any damages, clean the farmyard and, finally,  put the animals to sleep.

We will also learn the planting process. We will see how we should prepare the land, cleaning it and preparing it with tractors or rakes; that we should place the seeds carefully in order to take care of them easily later when they grow into plants. We will plant our own vegetable garden and take very good care of it.

We will become familiar with the machines that help the farmer with his job every day like the tractor, the spade, and the rake.

We will learn which products farms provide us with, such as fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs and some delicious food that we eat every day which are derivative from these fruits products such as cereal, jelly, bread as well as other grains. We will also see the animals and the role they play on the farm.

This month we will also learn lots of new vocabulary. We will do math exercises like counting the different types of foods and classifying them into different groups, and reviewing their shapes.

In science, we will do experiments that will teach and show us how the food process works, we will prepare dough, we will shred and smash, dry and mix and cook delicious recipes.

RHYME OF THE MONTH

FIVE LITTLE DUCKS

Five little ducks, that I once knew,
Fat were three and skinny were two.
But the big mother duck with the feathers on her back,
She ruled her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.
Quack, quack, quack. Quack, quack, quack,
She ruled her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.

Down to the water, they would go,
Waddle, waddle, waddle, to and fro.
But the big mother duck with the feathers on her back,
She ruled her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.
Quack, quack, quack. Quack, quack, quack.
She ruled her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.

They swam around here and there.
They bobbed for food, everywhere.
But the big mother duck with the feathers on her back,
She ruled her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.
Quack, quack, quack. Time to go back.
She told her ducklings with a quack, quack, quack.

 

Value of the Month: LOYALTY

We teach children that loyalty is uttering true to someone. It teaches us to be faithful to what we believe and to who we believe. Loyalty strengthens our bonds with one another.
