From Farm to Table

How does our food get from the farm to our homes?

Hello Families!

Get ready to explore, read, and play! Children learn all the time, and your involvement is crucial. Here you will find the tools you need to support your little learner at home. Here we grow!

Let's Celebrate!

During the next few weeks, children will graph their favorite foods and learn how food is produced, packaged, and delivered through books, games, and songs. You will be invited to share in a celebration of family food favorites as we explore how foods get from farm to table.

Family Letters

Hello Families! Learn what we are talking about each week, and discover some simple activities you can do at home. Literacy is everyday practices, not just something that happens in school.

Volunteer Notes

You can help! In the coming weeks, be on the look-out for volunteer requests, or contact your teacher to learn how you can participate.

Celebration Notes

Your little ones achieve new milestones each day. Notice if they can wash themselves, make healthy food choices, or name and describe different foods. Celebrate each achievement with a high five and "You are really learning a lot!"

Theme 6: From Farm to Table

Learning where food comes from is naturally appealing to curious little learners. In this theme, we learn that food is grown or raised on farms. We then learn how different foods get to our stores and how these foods might be prepared.

Try This!

Your commitment is the key to your little learner's success. Ready to unlock a bright future? Do these daily activities and routines at home!
