Field Trip
We went to the NM State Fair this week for our field trip.  We saw lots of farm animals and were even able to watch a cow milking and sheep shearing demonstration.  We talked alot about how different animals give us different products - like how the wool from the sheep could be turned into clothes.  There was a great pretend kids farm where they could harvest vegetables, milk a pretend cow, etc.  She also really liked the agriculture building where all the prize fruits and vegetables were and liked talking about how BIG they all were!  She also couldn't get over the fact that the goats had a little toddler slide in their pen.  She kept saying "Goat's don't have slides!  Aren't they silly?"

Books


That's all for this week! To see what other preschoolers are learning this week, check out the official Preschool Corner website!

  1. She looks like she is having a lot of fun making butter! It is pretty cute that her pigs and sheep are riding the tractor. It's a great example of child's imagination at work :)

    I'm tentatively planning to do a farm theme for our "F" week, which will be in early October. I'll have to take a peek at your post to remind me of your great ideas :)
