My youngest is 14. I have a dog named Lucy. I love to travel, garden, read, build things, face paint, ski and have fun!


Ten Little Birds by, Emily Ford (Tuesday's Book Reading)

After you are finished listening to Ten Little Birds, your activity is to complete the Counting Birds Worksheet which I will post on the webpage. What they have to do is count how many birds are in the tree and write the number in the box. At the bottom of the worksheet their is a visual of how to write the number. If they are still having trouble writing the number, write the number in a highlighter and have them trace over the number.

All animals grow and change. Human babies are called infants, they grow and change into adults.

For your activity, I would like you to draw a picture of your favorite animal that you see in the Spring time. After you are finished drawing your animal, I would like you to name your animal and write it at the top of your paper and post your picture on our webpage.
