q is for questions (hummingbirds)
Theme: q is for questions (hummingbirds)
Sensory: bird seed bin
Educational: comparing different size/colors eggs
video of hummingbirds from birth to flight
Books: "A Hummingbird's Life"
"Dancers in the Garden"
Song: "Rocking Robin"
Outing: a chicken house on a friends farm to see nesting boxes, hens, chicks, and eggs.
My lungs weren't very good this week so a lot of what I planned didn't get done. I had hoped to make candy nests, cheerio bird feeders, and a sensory bin. I also had several work boxes planned but we didn't end up doing any of them. I don't feel badly about this at all- this is partly why I make my own curriculum. There's always next week and next year.
Activities That We Didn't Do:
- "cooking" candy nests
- DIY bird feeders (cereal)
- counting eggs on numbers
- roll and count nest game
- catching worms game
- parts of a bird puzzle
