Birds with MGT

This month we are learning all about birds! X is so excited about this unit. He loves birds and is really looking forward to be able to identify more of them.

Both boys really enjoyed making nests and painting eggs.

They enjoyed the added challenge of using a pom pom held by a clothes pin instead of a brush. They really came out beautifully. The Pom pom created an awesome speckled texture that looked like the eggs in the picture!

We used the materials a little differently then intended. Instead of painting the egg, we used the outside as a stencil. The boys applied the paint and then we removed the white paper stencil. It worked perfectly!

X has really been loving the Journal activities these past 2 months. He’s also been very interested in learning his letters. So he loved stamping oval eggs on the pages and writing a capital E in each. I also love how convenient it is to keep the journals to look back on what we’ve done. It’s a great way to see his progress!

X loved creating letters with the feathers. He worked hard on this for quite some time. He’s such a tactile learner, I love how many projects there each month that really cater to how he learns best.

We’re only a week into our birds theme and we’ve already had so much fun! We can’t wait to see what the rest of the month will bring!!

I received this month’s Mother Goose Time curriculum free of charge in exchange for sharing our experience and my opinions. All content and opinions are 100% mine and truly honest.
