Pre-K Farm Themed Lesson Plan

2:07 PM

This past week, I was trying to think of another Fall themed subject that I had not already covered. I went through my books and came across "Who Took The Farmer's Hat?" I liked the lesson on sharing that it offered, and decided to create a farm themed lesson plan around it. It went over well with the kids and we still haven't had any meltdowns. Yay!


"Who Took the Farmer's Hat" by Joan L. Nodset

Learning Activity: 

F is for Farmer worksheet from the pre-k farm pack found here.


We recreated the nest that the red bird makes out of the farmer's brown hat in the book. I cut out hat shapes from brown card stock and let the kids glue on hay, a white fluff ball egg and a colored red bird that I got from here.

We also made sheep out of the kid's handprints. Cut a handprint from black cardstock, turn it upside down and glue on cotton balls, a googly eye and popsicle stick to turn it into a puppet.

Sensory Activity:

I like to have at least one sensory activity in each lesson that lets the kids explore by getting their hands on something. This time I had a farm themed sensory bin. It had dried corn on the bottom, hay on the top, vegetable and fruit foam shapes, plastic farm animals and even a tractor.

Do you have any Fall themed lesson plan ideas? I would love to hear them!
