After learning about cows, we mad Deanna Jump's Cow Glyph and added Julie Lee's sentence frames to our cows. We also made the pigs from Julie Lee's Farm Unit, again adding the sentence frames.

We also added my Farm Friends games to our centers. These games were perfect for our students and the skills they are focusing on.
We are working really hard on decoding in our class. The students have been working so hard, that CVC words are TOO easy for some of the groups! Don't you just LOVE when the students exceed your expectations?! In the decoding games, I have added ee words, r-controlled, and CVCe words for our students who are working above grade level. However, I still have CVC words for our students who are still working on mastering decoding skills.

This unit also includes a graph. Here are the results of our Favorite Farm Animal Graph:
As we continued to learn about Farm Animals, we also made this cow and used kinderbykim's idea of adding facts about cows to the cow's body!

We have been focusing on our High Frequency (Sight) Words so much, that we are putting them all around the classroom! Here is a way that we incorporated them into our Farm Unit...Table Names using adorable clip art from KPM Doodles.
Now, what you have (hopefully) been waiting for!! The Freebie! I have added a similar version of the following High Frequency (Sight) Word game to my TpT store. It is called This Little Piggy! A High Frequency Word Game. I hope you enjoy it!
