Have you read The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend? Oh, my goodness! What fun I had last week sharing this book with our kindergarten classes! We giggled together at the birds and their foreign accents.
I’m going to share this book with my group of high achieving first graders, and I’ve created activities to add depth and complexity to our study. The activities are available for download from my TPT shop. These learning responses view the story from multiple disciplines and perspectives.
If you want to try out one of the activities, check out my free printable Perfect Nest activity.
At our school, several classes have incubators full of eggs, and we hear more “peeps” every day. It’s so amazing to watch the chicks struggle into this world, pecking, peeping, and breathing hard. The Perfect Nest is a funny, but ultimately heart-warming book that is just perfect for springtime.
I hope you have the chance to share it with YOUR students!
