Exotic Birds

Welcome back to Mrs. Kats Kids this is our last week in our birds and eggs unit with Experience Early Learning ( formerly Mother goose time)

This week we talked about the Ostrich, Penguin, blue crane, and peacock. These types of birds are not normally in your backyard. By including these types of animals into the preschool curriculum, children build a broader range of knowledge of birds.

Unless your David check out this Crane in his backyard!!

How cool is this!!!

We have also had a great time doing our Facebook lives and craft time with our friends at home.

As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning Preschool curriculum in exchange for our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing stuff for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children. #preschool #EELblogger Experience Early Learning | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram
