This Weeks Theme: Barnyard Friends
Daily Lesson Plan

*Feel free to bring in any barnyard friends you may want to share with the class.:)
The 1 year old Toddler class will continue studying over the barnyard friends. We did not get to cover all the basic farm animals we may see on a farm, have as a pet or see riding along on the roads. By next Friday, we will go over all the barnyard animals that we are use to seeing on a farm.
Animals are very exciting & therapeutic to learn about. Everyday we go over each farm animals picture that we have posted; by saying the animal's name and the sound that it makes. Then we would go to the barn displayed in class & feed the animals with the leaves from the plant that is also displayed in class.
With our Legos we would build another barn and put the toy animals into it, as if they are grazing in their pasture, home or simply playing with each other. Most students have grasped the idea and enjoy interacting with each other in doing so.
We did plant some seeds out in the RSCA garden and in a small container in class. We also have a toy that is a house with a doorway that we use a toy dog to go in & out (opposites). The toy dog will eat from bones made into the toy house and drink water from a bowl displayed on the side of the house. Most of the students have grasped this idea as well.
*Last Thursday and Friday we watched; The Cat in the Hat and Babe.
Everyone is doing a great job in class. Please let me know if you have any questions or barnyard ideas.
