This week we entered into the world of habitats, hatching, and survival with birds! Our school adopted the Reading Street program a few years ago and I really like the variety and challenges of the program. We learned the short e and initial blends and the big question of the week was "Which animals can you find in your own neighborhood?"
We watched a video my husband put together on the baby birds that hatched in our backyard. From there we made bird houses for the students to put up to observe the birds around their house and write about what they saw and learned.

We enjoyed this project so much, we are continuing next week with a take home project:
Make Your Own Habitat!
I'll post it when it is finished!!
