remainder of the school year, we will be talking about animals that hatch from
eggs. We will spend time talking about
birds, reptiles, amphibians and insects.
We will be reading the book Chickens Aren’t the Only Ones. Also, during this unit we will be making our
last book that will go home on the last day of school. We will be painting two birds, a reptile, an
amphibian, a caterpillar and a butterfly.
The first two weeks we will discuss
birds. We will look at different kinds
of birds and learn what some of them are.
We will sing a song called “Jack and Jill” and change their color each
time we sing. We will be reading Birds
by Kevin Henkes, In the Nest, and Birdsongs by Betsy Franco. We will be going out on a nature walk and
collecting things to make a bird nest.
We will then use clay and the items we found to make a nest that we can
take home. We will make eggs out of clay
to go in it. We will also paint with
feathers. For snack we will make bird
cheese toast and a nest out of Chinese noodles and peanut butter with raisin
For reptiles we will look at the different
kinds of reptiles there are and what makes them reptiles. We will drag yarn through green and brown
paint and use it as snakes slithering through the grass and mud. We will make breadstick snakes for snack. We will be reading The Greedy Python
and The Mixed Up Chameleon both by Eric Carle. We will learn two finger plays “My Turtle“
and “I Had a Little Turtle”.
For amphibians we will look at the
different kinds of amphibians and what makes them amphibians. We will use plastic frogs and dip their feet
in green and blue for grass and water and jump them on our paper to make frog
footprints. We will make frogs on a log
for snack with a pretzel rod, peanut butter and raisin frogs. We will be reading The Wide Mouthed Frog
by Keith Faulkner and The Salamander Room by Anne Mazer. We will learn the song “5 Green and Speckled
The last week and half we will look at
