The children started having a discussion about the birds outside that they see flying by our classroom windows. The children wondered 'how do the birds find food when the ground is covered in snow and ice'? The teachers asked the children, "How do you think our friends can help the birds get through this long, cold and bitter winter?" The children discussed this amongst themselves and came up with the idea of making bird feeders in the art studio, filling the feeders up with bird seeds and hanging them outside on the trees for the birds to enjoy. That day we had Rose, an SK student, write a letter to go home to the parents asking for donations of materials that would assist them in building the bird feeders. The next day the donations of materials came pouring into our classroom and the student went straight to work.
