Cow and Pig Craft: First item for SALE!!!

Today is a first!  This is my first item for SALE on my TPT store!  I feel a little nervous about it, but I am so proud of these cute little cow and pig crafts that I made, so I think it is time!  To see the complete Farm Unit click {HERE}.



My students are learning about the farm and all of the animals that live on it!  We are actually going on a field trip to a local farm tomorrow, so for the past two weeks we have been talking about different farm animals.  We made this cow craft, and I read them several stories about cows, we watched videos, and did several different thinking maps about cows.  At the end, the students wrote a sentence about a cow.



Next, we learned about pigs.  This was fun because kids think piglets are adorable (ok, maybe I do...)  We did the same, we read stories, watched videos and made this pig craft to go with our farm unit.



What I like about this craft is that it can be tied in with science, writing, and language arts.  We can cover several kindergarten standards and content areas by doing one fun craft.  It is important to me to have crafts that can be attached to writing.  This keeps the students engaged and excited about their sentences.

Here is the farm bulletin board with all of the pigs and cows.  




This is just the beginning of my kindergarten farm unit...  :)
