|Writing all of this information is a big job for a |
kindergartner, but it is about birds, so
they don't mind at all.
|Their drawings really surprised me! Very nice!|
First we chose which twenty backyard birds we wanted to have in our book. Then we researched them at the smart board and came up with a few facts about each bird. Then I typed them up for each child to copy onto their page. Then they drew the bird, but he first draft of the drawn birds seemed a little rushed, so the second try had them meeting with me first to discuss which field marks are important to show. Then they had step-by-step drawing lesson. I don't draw on their paper at all, but I show them how on my paper. They loved it and keep begging me to show them how to draw more birds! Here are a few of the finished pages. They will be available for sale online next month! Their bird book will be a nice keepsake from their year in kindergarten.
