After lunch we continued our bird study and read Nesting Neighbors by Jennifer Patrick and learned about flamingos from The Big Book of Birds. Elliot also did a paint with water piece.
Our last day studying nesting birds but thankfully we get to see and learn about all the cool birds that visit us here everyday. This morning we read How Do Birds Find Their Way by Roma Gans and also looked at our Big Book of Birds by Yuval Zommer. Then practiced the letter B, did some coloring, rhyming, line work, and used count and clip cards by @sosimpleabeginning for our number lesson. We also looked at our feather collection and grouped them all by color/type.
This week in our nature study we are learning about nesting birds. To start we read Mama Built a Little Nest by Jennifer Ward. Then completed a bird anatomy and bird name worksheet, NEST letter sheet, looked at all different types of nests, practiced the letter N and ovals, and had a counting lesson with a cute egg set. We also built a little nest out of popsicle sticks, yarn and twigs.

After lunch we learned more about Robins. We read Nesting by Henry Cole and also a section in our Big Book of Birds by Yuval Zommer. Then practiced the letter R, completed a robin life cycle (@honeycombcabin) and had fun with bird stamps.
