“The Love Fruit Stand built a farm!”
Old McLoveStand had a farm, E-I-E-I-O! With some fun, fun here and some fun, fun there, here some fun, there some fun, everywhere some fun, fun! Old McLoveStand had a farm, E-I-E-I-O!”
Can you tell we talked about the farm this week? It was great!
We have mooed, oinked, neighed, quacked and clucked all week! The kids had a ton of fun singing Old McDonald, dancing to Farm Animal Exercise, and pretending to be farm animals.
We talked and learned about the importance of farms, farmers, and the animals on the farm. They were even given hands-on learning fun digging up food from the dirt. They went digging to find potatoes and radishes. We also talked about other vegetables we grow in the ground. We learned that a farm teaches about colors. Corn is yellow, radishes are red, potatoes are brown, onions are white, pumpkins and carrots are orange, green peppers are green, and eggplants are purple.
The animals teach us colors, as well as providing us with food. Ask your child what food each animal provides us. We talked about cows, chickens, pigs, and goats. They even learned which animals on the farm are working animals. (horse, dog, donkey)
We talked about the days of creation and where things on the farm fell on the time line of creation. God created the animals, plants, and trees that we get food from. Then we talked about Adam and Eve and why we have to work for what we need now. Ask them which animal on the farm was used to make clothes for Adam and Eve.
We did not forget our Veteran’s Day Celebration. We talked about the importance of our military and their service to our country. If we did not have brave men and women willing to serve and risk their lives, we would not be free in America to farm. We prayed for others who have lost brave family members to honor, protect, and serve our country proud. We also prayed for the farmers and truckers that make and deliver our food. Our preschoolers are learning to let their love climb for others in their community.
