A flock of birds just flew past our window. I’m sure that my neighbor has been feeding them. They have numerous feeders set up in their yard. We are grateful for people like our neighbors who care for animals and the environment.

Are your students interested in birds? If so, check out this fabulous site called Auduban for Kids. You’ll find new vocabulary words, activities, and more!

“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.”

Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952)

“We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.”

Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952)
