Barnyard Fun In Kindergarten

We had a great time on our farm field trip and the kids thought riding a school bus was fantastic.It takes very little to thrill a 5 year old.  They loved touching the animals and watching a cow get milked. Farmer Teena (our tour guide) was really excellent and something tells me she might have been a teacher in a previous life. She knew everyone's name within a few minutes and she never lost control over her enthusiastic audience. We also saw oxen and found out they each weighed 3,000 pounds. They really impressed them. The gardens were filled with vegetables so I told them I was sorry that I didn't bring any salad dressing. No one thought that was even slightly funny except for Farmer Teena. Now I know why I liked her...

I think wishing you brought salad dressing is totally funny Fran! What do 5 and 6 year olds know!

We used to do a lot with the farm in kindergarten and it is really fun. Maybe I will squeeze in more of the farm just so I can use your adorable farm book!

Thanks for sharing and it sounds like you had an awesome trip!
