Bird Feeders!

I’m so excited!!  Look what I got in the mail on Friday at school!  I visited with the nice folks from The Cornell Lab of Ornithology last year at NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) and found out about their program to have elementary aged students help with bird counting–this is something my Kinders can do! 🙂  I get a newsletter from them monthly and about 2 months ago, there was an application for the Adopt-a-school program.  We were chosen!!


This is what was inside the box:





A window bird feeder, bird seed, and 10 student binoculars for bird watching!!  IMG_1561

I can’t wait to show my kiddos!  We already have 5 bird feeders outside our class room windows and a poster near the windows so the kiddos can identify the birds (and squirrels) that visit our feeders.  This will help us to bring the birds up close to the windows and let my kiddos have a chance to watch them with their binoculars.

Thanks to Pennington Bird Seed Company for choosing us!
