Yesterday afternoon I had to smile when I found Kathleen like this in our living room. I love that my girls love to read as much as I do. :-)
Today we talked about the wind and birds!
We made a wind instrument using a toilet paper roll, wax paper, rubber bands and crayons.
Yes...I still have my snowmen decor out....it's that cold! LOL
Just hum into the small hole and enjoy your wind instrument!
Next we talked about birds. We have bluebirds starting to nest in our bird houses out front. So nice to hear them singing outside our windows in the morning!
Owen waiting patiently by my feet to play!
As you can see I cut a slit in the middle of the bird so we could place the wings inside and he can fly!
A couple finger plays:
A nest for Mrs. Robin, (form circle)
A woodpecker's hole in a tree, (form circle)
Or a birdhouse made by me: (point to self)
Bird homes are all three!( three fingers)
Little Robin redbreast sat upon a rail.
Niddle, naddle went his head. (move head)
Wiggle, waggle went his tail. (wiggle hands behind back)
Scottish nursery Rhyme.
Here's a little saying to encourage the activity as you recite it.
We are baby birdies living in a nest.
We dream of flying when we take our rest
Finally one Spring day we hop, hop, hop.
And flutter our wings flop, flop, flop
They lift us up and then we fly
We fly around the sky
Flying very high and flying very low
Then in a big circle--round we go
Finally we soar home and go to sleep
We close our eyes without a peep!
Just curious....I've noticed with blogger I've been unable to pull in updates on my dashboard. Is anyone else having this problem?
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
