For the Birds ~ Books for the Month of February
We have almost completed a full month of our For the Birds study. And, I have to say, I have enjoyed it probably more than Brynne. My older kids laugh at me because of my obsession with birds. They bring me such joy!
Here are the books we will be reading for the month of February (and March before Spring Break) ...
January 31st ~ A Mother for Choco by Keiko Kaska
February 7th ~ Stellaluna by Janell Cannon and any version of The Ugly Duckling
February 14th ~ We will not have a book, but instead will be participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count from the 18th-21st. Before those dates we will re-watch Your Backyard so that our bird identification will be easier.
February 21st ~ United Tweets of America by Hudson Talbott. On January 17th we will have the opportunity to attend Homeschoolers Day at our state capitol. I will make Brynne a State of Oklahoma notebook to learn as much about the state as possible before we go. The week of February 21st we will then continue to study our state bird and other states, as well.
February 28th ~ Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting
March 7th ~ The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend
