First Grade Winter Birds

I know we are all praying for Spring to arrive, but these Winter Birds are one of my favorite lessons this year!  I borrowed the idea from a teacher in my district, but adapted it to my style and materials available. This is a crowd pleaser for sure! Student, teachers, parents... all stop me to say 
how much they love them! 



 Students started their birds by tracing a 2" circle, like the one in the picture. Then drawing the body free hand. Some are skinny, some are thick, they all have personality!  Then a feather was added for fun and added texture.

Last step... a little snow.

 I love this type of lesson...  there are so many different materials that work so well together!
