ONE More Farm Post!

This is our Farm Fact Book. I found these animal tracers in a Mailbox Magazine 20+ years ago. I still like them and will probably NEVER change! I'm very sentimental.

This is the cover. I let the kiddos draw and cut out their own animals this year. CUTE!
Kristi and I made this ourselves.
I believe this is a TLC hen....

This is our symmetrical cow with our addition facts. It's not part of the book, but somehow hers was added! Oh well - it's all together!

We used our charts to choose our fact. I found a post here  that used this type of chart for Goldilocks  that I loved. So I made a few...

On another note...
Our ducks FINALLY decided to  HATCH Thursday...the day I got terribly sick and had to go home to pull up to dying!!!!  Friday, they were STILL hatching - with me still at home. Thank goodness for good friends and a driving son who could pick up my slack! My Phillip brought everything home for the weekend in a terrible rain storm. Only my luck... Anyway, two are here and 6 are pipping. I guess nothing worth doing is easy?! 


  1. OMG each picture is cuter than the next one.
    I love the bubble maps you created with the kids... so cute.
    I want you to come over to my blog and sign up for the giveaway. I hope you win!

  2. I love the ducklings! As a CA girl, all these blog posts about ducks and chicks hatching makes me want to give it a try. For now, I'll just read the blogs about it! Hope you are feeling better.

  3. Fran -thanks for the great idea for the bubble map - and incorporating the sight words! I have always wanted each child's Fact Book to be authentic - a fact THEY chose - without the usual going to 18 individuals to help them sound out a sentence. I have never found a way to do it so easily. Your charts helped me give the children more ownership! THANKS!!!

  4. Mrs. Parker - Just bite the bullet and whip out that incubator, girl! lol It truly is a great experience.
    I am feeling better - thanks for asking! I just do too much, sometimes.

  5. LOVE your farm activities! I'm obsessed with the farm right now lol.
