It's springtime!  Even thought it won't stop snowing and raining and hasn't gotten about 40 degrees, we're starting to see birds!  The kids are getting pretty restless getting stuck inside all the time, but they're enjoying all the variety of birds in our yard.  They have big plans for birdseed sensory bins, water fun, and other warm weather games.  Spring is also a great time for a bird, egg, or nest themed homeschool unit.

Once you have the three cards, you can present them to your child in the traditional Montessori method.  Have the child match the picture card with the label to the other two cards.  They can also match the Safari Ltd Backyard Bird figures to the picture cards or label the toys with the cards.  The child can also spell out the words with a movable alphabet like printable cards or shaped letters.

Earlier, I mentioned that the Safari Ltd Backyard Bird figures are great toys for sensory bins.  The snap lid clear container (get it here) that I'm using for the bin is about 6x6x3, which is a great size for keeping several bins set up at one time.  They would be great in a classroom, too!  I used some old birdseed mix for the substrate and added a fake bird's nests to encourage pretend play.  The wood bowl and tiny scoop allow the child to work on their fine motor skills and most kids enjoy scooping and dumping the seeds.  You could also add feathers or pretend eggs for more birdy fun and a clothespin with some wiggly pipe cleaner pieces make beak and worms for pecking.
