We are loving our Kindergarten Literature Units, and recently completed Counting is for the Birds!
I love setting up a central area for our theme focus and my daughter loves it too. I gather our toys and books together and display them the night before we begin our unit. It helps to draw her in and get her excited about our learning time together. This was a VERY easy unit to set up for since my kids are obsessed with birds, and I once was and had a lot from my teaching days!
Ladybug just had her 6th birthday and got the cute little bird feeder swing and all of those stuffed birds, the small bird toob birds, and the singing birds. They came at the perfect time to set up for this unit!
I had so much, we used the entire length of the shelf!
She LOVED the display and went straight for the new 3 part bird cards…
After reading the book, we got straight to work. Here she was working on ordinal numbers…
B is for Bird and…
She was SO excited to make a cardinal!
I got her a little bird sticker pack which she loved!
Her cardinals from the previous day dried so she cut them out and put them together!
We worked on the character activity…
Labeling a bird…
We worked on the hundreds chart mystery picture. First I had her circle all of the numbers in the correct color as we went through them one by one together. Then she went back and colored…
Sequencing the story…
Skip counting with a little birdy friend…
Unscramble the sentence…
Got out our fraction puzzles to go along with our bird fraction page.
Painting a blue jay…
Life cycle of a bird…
We read this book every day, sometimes more than once. She loves it!
She is browsing through to show me the answers to the comprehension questions!
Writing about her favorite bird from the story, a nuthatch!
Throughout the week she begged for more bird crafts. I got all of these from Learn, Create Love here!
All of our work from this unit! Such a FUN unit!
To top it all off, we got to visit a good friend who has chickens and has just gotten new baby chicks! My bird girl was in heaven!
