The Farmerettes classroom resources

Good in Every Grain is pleased to revisit the Farmerettes whom we introduced to teachers and students in November 2021. We’re bringing them back by popular demand! As always, the resources are FREE and easy to use!

FREE 12×18″ poster

Shipped to all Ontario teachers who registered for the virtual class visit. While supplies last.

The Farmerettes signed a pledge as members of the Ontario Farm Service Force. The certificate included a motivational poem to inspire persistence and determination. We’ve turned it into a poster to serve as a reminder in your classroom.
