So this would go on a bulletin board:

What came to mind is to use 10 velcro dots on the barn picture or in front of the barn. Also the barn has to have a rectangular door with velcro on the door.

Have a 'pasture' with 10 of each kind of animal, like 10 cows with velcro on the back. (You could have each pasture labeled with a picture of the animals belonging in it, so that you could also have them sort the pictures to the right pasture).

Have small rectangle numbers 1-10 that go on the door.

So you have created a counting 1:1 activity and also number recognitiion.

Here are math skills that preschoolers need to learn, preferably before kindergarten:

You can do a lot of educational things with farm theme. I use a lot of science during this theme. Plus there are lots of farm math/reading activities you can find on the internet to supplement the theme. Here are some of the things I do:

* Use different types of animal feed (hay, ground corn, oats, etc.) for a great sensory experience. Have the kids guess which animal eats the type of feed.

* You can teach about the different types of animals found on the farm. You can have them do a sorting activity using farm and zoo animals.

* For dramatic play, offer animal masks and have them pretend to be the animals.

* You can teach about the different crops found on the farms (wheat, corn, soybeans, milk, etc.). You could even go into depth about what we use each one for.

* Farm transportation (tractors, combines, etc.) This is great vocab.

We live in a rural area, so we go look at crops growing around our school too. Maybe you could do a field trip to a farm. My kids always love this theme!
