Each first grade student has selected a bird to research and represent through painting. They bring their research folders to the Shared Space and, in this guided setting, create a detailed painting of their chosen bird. They work hard to create realistic feathers, feet, bill, and dimensions.
In the classroom, the students focus each week on one aspect of birds: habitats, nests, feet, beaks, food, eggs, and feathers. They learn about these concepts through the lens of their chosen bird.
The next step will be to create a label for their bird painting including a main idea sentence and several supporting details.
