Toddler School - Week 6 - Birds

Jay began the Little Keepers At Home activities for the Bird Pin this week. I thought Baby Jay would enjoy learning along with her. We already know how much she loves chickens. You can take a look at our Farm Animals post here.

I was able to photograph a cardinal and a blue jay to show the girls. To read about how CJ made this Milk Jug Bird Feeder click here.

We went outside to catch "ninens" (chickens) today. The weather was beautiful! As well as enjoying the birds, the girls enjoyed a walk, jumping on the trampoline, swinging on the swing set, and sliding down the slide. Baby Jay learned to climb the ladder by herself.

She enjoyed the books I brought home from the Library for Jay as well as one I brought home for myself. The first was Birds by Melissa Stewart. This wasn't a book that I read to her, but we enjoyed looking at the pictures together. The next was There is a Bird on Your Head! by Mo Willems. Baby Jay thought this book was hilarious. So did I! The book I brought home for myself is Free-Range Chicken Gardens by Jessi Bloom. The pictures in this book are fabulous! Baby Jay can not get enough of this book. She has us look at it with her several times a day.

I would love to read your suggestions for learning about birds!
