Big Red Barn Farm Kindergarten Literature Unit

We have another new Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack which is expanded to include more activities than our units in the past! Explore farm life with this new set based on the book Big Red Barn by, Margaret Wise Brown.

Set the stage for your unit by gathering extra books and some toys! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.

Don’t have a lot of toys and books to go along with this book? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool! Be sure to purchase the book Big Red Barn, or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in other fun FARM books to bring the theme alive!

 For this unit, I selected several Kindergarten Math and Literacy Goals to focus on.

Homeschool Kindergarten Literacy Goals Homeschool Kindergarten Math Goals

There are over 20 activities to keep your Kindergartener engaged for quite a while! Many tots, preschoolers, and even 1st graders will enjoy this set! The main focus is Kindergarten but that isn’t exclusive! Below you can see a collage of all the printables included! Click each image to enlarge!

 

Big Red Barn features a simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

The printables were created to go along with the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy-rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

Have fun retelling the story and expanding comprehension with our comprehension questions, photo cards, and sequencing activities!

Explore beginning sounds, sight words, rhyming, and more with these fun activities!

 

Explore important Kindergarten math concepts with several different activities.

You’ll also find some science activities – labeling a goat and the life cycle of a chicken. Explore positional words with a mini-book, and have fun finding some differences! Also included – some tracing and coloring fun!

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!

Accordion Book Printables

Accordion Book Printables

When my kids were little they loved mini accoridion books.  Something about the design really drew their attention.  My daughter especially loved them, begging me to make them with her.  I never really put all of the accordion books I created all in one place until now!

On the new Accordion Book page you’ll find all of these and I hope to add more in the future!  Alphabet, Shapes & Numbers, Bugs, Farm and Ocean are there now!

Five Little Chicks Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

I am sad that this is one of our last Kindergarten Literature Units,  unless I decide to do more this summer.  I had a few more I wanted to create and do with her, so we will see! 

This one, Five Little Chicks, was inspired by her recent obsession with chickens.

Five Little Chicks Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

I love setting up a central area for our theme focus and my daughter loves it too.  I gather our toys and books together and display them the night before we begin our unit. It helps to draw her in and get her excited about our learning time together. For this unit, we gathered our stuffed chickens, our farm magnets, and displayed our chicken books.

A very simple sensory tub, with popcorn kernels and little chickens.  The little gold pipe cleaner pieces are worms. She LOVED this tub, and it is still out even though our unit is done.
