Spring is a great time to focus on farm animals and activities. The Montessori grammar farm is a fun, hands-on way to use a farm theme to introduce grammar to preschoolers. The photo from Counting Coconuts shows a lovely example of a grammar farm. Counting Coconuts gives ideas and links for creating your own grammar farm along with a link for directions on presenting the grammar farm to your child or students.
