This spring, I was scheduled to participate in the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s Ag Literacy Week, a program in which farmers and other ag professionals read an ag-themed picture book to K-2 classrooms. Because schools closed before the date I planned to read, I decided to make a video of myself reading the book and a few clips of our farm to share. This year’s book is On the Farm, At the Market, written and illustrated by G. Brian Karas. Enjoy!
From the Ag Literacy Week website:
Pennsylvania Ag Literacy Week focuses on connecting volunteers from the agricultural community to local classrooms for the purpose of increasing student knowledge about agriculture. It is an opportunity for Pennsylvania agriculturalists (farmers, industry representatives, FFA teachers and students, and others supportive of agriculture) to be the face of agriculture in kindergarten-2nd grade classrooms across the commonwealth. They will not only read the Ag Literacy Week book, but they will tell the students about their farms, programs or connections to agriculture.
The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to move to a virtual format for 2020.
On the Farm, At the Market is being read with permission from Macmillan Publishers and Henry Holt Books for Young Readers for non-commercial purposes in accordance with the publisher’s content-use guidelines during this crisis.
This video will only be available until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
