Fun on the Farm

As you all know we've been having lots of fun learning about farms. I love this unit! There is so much fun you can do with farm. I'm going to be working on a lots of fantastic farm activities for you all soon.  
Here are my cute little firsties. Adorable huh? They each chose their favorite farm animal and they are going to write about why it is their favorite. 
Here is the favorite farm animal response sheet.
We also made a favorite farm animal graph. I haven't taken a picture but I will. If you want the graph you can download it by clicking the picture below.

This week I also introduced our Punctuation People and let me tell you...In my 12 years I've never had kiddos so excited over finding punctuation.  After reading my punctuation people book, I gave each student a punctuation person and they had to find a sentence that used that type of punctuation in our morning message. Aren't my kiddos too stinkin' cute. 
Here they are reading their sentence for their punctuation person.  
 I seriously have the cutest first graders! 
My students also started partner reading this week during reader's workshop. My sweet friend Kim Adsit has an awesome reader's workshop unit called Powerful Partnerships. You should definitely check it out.

I'll be back soon with more freebies and photos.
Have a great Monday friends.

  1. Those punctuation people are cute! I'm just about to begin some lessons on that topic and am looking for a more student-engaging lesson(s). Maybe I'll give it a try this year. Whose TpT store are they in??
