Spring Bird Unit

Today we began our "Bird Unit" by reading the book Beaky. Love this book and it kept the children very engaged.

by: Jez Alborough

An egg tumbled to the rain forest floor and out popped Beaky! He was uncertain of what kind of creature he was but very determined to find out.

After reading Beaky went over our lap book and then began the unit curriculum.
Learning Warm Colors. Color the bird house Red, Yellow, and Orange. 

 Learning Cool Colors. Color the bird house Blue, Purple, and Green.
 Coloring the Letter Bb
Although we completed our Letter Bb, I consider this reinforcing this letter. 

 Pre-writing tracing the letter Bb

Count the leaves on the tree and circle the correct number in the box.

What a fun lesson. I will have to check out Beaky. I've been looking for some good books involving birds. Thanks for sharing!
