|How can you not love these cheerful little guys?|
I do have over 200 pictures of my trip and I will be sharing them at my blog devoted to mostly birds. If you love birds you can check out my other pictures in the coming weeks! I'd Rather Be Birding is the blog where I let my bird geekiness out! I promised I wouldn't mention any more bird activities this year. So I won't tell you about the Chickadee and Hawk game we played during our break. I won't mention how it is a lot like Duck Duck Goose. I wish I could tell you how "It" is a chickadee and says chicka-dee-dee-dee and on the last dee the person they touch turns into a hawk and tries to catch them. You'll have to wait until next year to find out that the chickadee is safe if it makes it all the way around the circle and sits down in hawk's place. I bet you can hardly wait until next year to find out how to play this game that teaches kids about predator and prey in the bird world...sigh!
|Looking through a compost pile for earthworms.|
|Isn't it cute?|
|Do you know how hard it is to measure worms? I'll be glad to use|
ones that aren't quite so squirmy and made out of yarn!
Today we started learning all about worms. I promise a couple of posts about this. Here are a couple of pictures to whet your appetite for more wormy ideas...
Finally here is a Fact or Fiction activity that I'll use with my students tomorrow. We'll be reading Diary of a Worm. Today we read a non-fiction book called Wonderful Worms. Tomorrow we'll be writing poetry...our first draft and deciding whether statements are fact or fiction...Here's a link for you if you'd like a freebie for studying worms!
Enjoy these wonderful last days of school. Love the students that are precious in His sight. I pray they are precious in your sight, too!
