5) Feed the Chicken Count and Draw Cards – Print these out and get kids to draw the correct number of feed or use with manipulatives like corn kernels
6) Eggs Alphabet Order Strips – Each strip has a set of 5 letters. Kids will determine if the letters are in the correct order then choose the thumbs up or down.

10) Farm Playdough Letter Mats – 2 versions included for uppercase letters. You can also use other things to fill in the letter space instead of playdough of course.
