2013 National Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Award
Ms. Andrea Jones Seagraves
Crawford County Eagle's Nest, Roberta, Georgia
There are two agricultural programs running concurrently in Andrea's kindergarten special and general education inclusive classrooms. First, the "Agricultural Alphabet" is a yearlong curriculum correlating agriculture to letters in the alphabet. Then there is a protected time set aside each Friday dedicated to lessons which incorporate agricultural literature and Common Core standards across the curriculum. Andrea calls this time 'Farm Fridays'.
