Counting is for the Birds Literature Unit in Action

We are loving our Kindergarten Literature Units,  and recently completed Counting is for the Birds!Counting is for the Birds Unit Study in Action

I love setting up a central area for our theme focus and my daughter loves it too.  I gather our toys and books together and display them the night before we begin our unit. It helps to draw her in and get her excited about our learning time together. This was a VERY easy unit to set up for since my kids are obsessed with birds, and I once was and had a lot from my teaching days!

Ladybug just had her 6th birthday and got the cute little bird feeder swing and all of those stuffed birds, the small bird toob birds, and the singing birds.  They came at the perfect time to set up for this unit!
