The Chickadee Birders

Here they are!  Meet the Chickadee Birders!  These are the kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade students...and me.  We meet on Friday afternoons for 20-30 minutes for a bird lesson.  Sometimes we are all together and sometimes the 1st and 2nd alternate.  The reason we get together is to keep that bird knowledge fresh in their mind and to have fun!  I try to teach them other things about nature as well.  It is my favorite time of the week.
This has also helped to build friendships between younger 
and older students.  Also the older birders are good 
mentors to the younger ones.  That second grade class has 
always been great about asking those deeper thinking questions.
Sometimes things get a little crazy!
