Farm Preschool Activities


Activities and ideas for a Farm Theme in your preschool, pre-k or kindergarten classroom:

Literacy FARM Themed Preschool Activities

  1. Sequence fun farm stories like 'Mrs. Wishy Washy Farm' or 'Rosie's Walk' (links at the end of this post).
  2. Hide toy farm animals inside a toy barn. Give the class clues as to what animal is inside by using this format: It starts /beginning sound/ and rhymes with /rhyming word/.  For example: It starts /p/ and rhymes with wig - it's a pig!
  3. Sort animals that live on a farm and animals that live in the zoo.
  4. Read 'Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm', then create an animal wash station.  Fill three buckets with mud, soapy water and clear water. Give students plastic toy farm animals, scrub brushes and towels to dry.
