Old MacDonald had a farm… until Mrs. MacDonald left the gate open!

In-Person In-School Field Trip Description:

Now Old MacDonald’s farm is a mixed up mess and Mrs. MacDonald needs help to get the farm back in order. Students count, sort and pattern everything from blue cows and green chickens to flowers and pitch forks. Songs, movement, stories and an engaging poster activity all come together to show students that math helps everything make sense!

Video Conference Program Description:

One, two, it’s time to count with you! Join us on an exciting adventure through the Number Farm to learn how to count, sort and make patterns. Needless to say, this virtual experience is packed with fun-filled activities, creative imagery, sing-along-songs, and of course, animals galore! As an added bonus, you will get to keep your very own personal number puzzle so you can continue to build your understanding of number concepts at home!

It was a complete review of the Math portion of the curriculum. The students loved that it was hands-on. The Presenter really made the presentation so interesting and exciting. She is excellent with the students and made the experience a memorable one.

Kindergarten TeacherAlmadina Language Charter Academy

It was perfectly suited to my kindergarten students. It included movement, singing, stories and lots of hands-on art and counting. The Presenter was thoroughly prepared and an absolute pleasure to have in my classroom. The students loved it.

Kindergarten TeacherRoland Michener School

It covered many aspects of the kindergarten curriculum - Math - numbers, counting, patterns, sorting, etc. and doing it in a very fun way - through singing, moving, games, and story. The Presenter was fun, well-informed and knew her material inside and out.
