To prepare for our first field trip of the year, we read Charlotte’s Web. We had a lot of fun reading all about Charlotte and Wilbur. We also did plenty of reading response activities around Charlotte’s Web.
We also studied Johnny Appleseed before we went, while learning about idioms. My students learned a lot about idioms, and shared many that they knew. Afterwards they displayed what they learned with these adorable Johnny Appleseed pop up books!
Visiting the Farm
The Petting Zoo
Then it was time to visit the petting zoo, where they were able to hold and pet many animals. Here we are with some pigs. Needless to say, my students called every pig we saw Wilbur.
Then it was time to bid farewell, and board the bus. Despite the cold weather, we had a great day. My students packed up their pumpkins and we headed back to school. Once at school, we had enough time to pass out a few Halloween treats in class, and then students went home to do their real trick or treating. Hopefully your Halloween was was fun as ours was!
