This week we enjoyed learning about birds. We read bird stories and learned that the Purple Finch is the state bird of NH. We also looked at pictures of other birds that may visit our bird feeders. The children enjoyed making their bird feeders and hopefully everyone is able to find a spot to hang them in your yard. Help your child identify any birds that come to your feeder and make sure you send in your bird sightings! Each child has a bird journal that they will be recording their bird sightings in by tracing the name of the bird or drawing a picture of it.
We continued exploring percussion instruments during music. We played different drums that we have in the classroom, listened to a drumming CD and identified/colored instruments on our percussion worksheet. On Thursday, February 17th, our afternoon students will be walking to the Congregational Church to see and learn about percussion instruments. Please see me if you have any concerns/questions.
