Reading, Writing and Arithmetic on the Farm! A Math and Literacy Workshop for Teachers Grades K-2


Reading, Writing and Arithmetic on the Farm!
A Math and Literacy Workshop for Teachers Grades K-2 to Implement Agriculture in the Classroom

Using stories participants will discover a lesson incorporating plans, materials, and Common Core Standards so they can plant the seeds of Math and Literacy in their students using Agriculture. Each of the selected books is an Accurate AG Book, which tells the story of farming with facts, feelings and fun!

One set of books will be donated to each school that sends a teacher to the workshop. All participants will receive the materials needed to reproduce the lessons. Using the Common Core Standards and Strategies flip chart from Mentoring Minds, the appropriate Standard has been assigned to each lesson being presented.

Mathematics titles include:
How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? by Margaret McNamara
Soybeans in the Story of Agriculture by Susan Anderson & Joanne Buggey
The Apple Orchard Riddle by Margaret McNamara
The Beeman by Laurie Krebs

Literacy titles include:
The Guardian Team by Cat Urbigkit
