Well, it’s mid April and you’d think that we’d be seeing quite a few robins in the yard, however, I live in Northern Michigan and the weather is anything but predictable. In fact a winter storm just passed through the area and schools that were not on spring break had a couple of snow days. Crazy! Regardless of the weather outside here in the great white north, I know many of my teacher friends in other areas of the country and overseas are enjoying warmer weather. So, these robin nest activities would be appropriate for their centers. At least the calendar says it’s spring….
The robin’s nest activity for learning letters and sounds contains over 100 colorful robin eggs with pictures of beginning sounds. The activity can be easily differentiated as you choose which and how many eggs to sort.
Those short vowel sounds can really trip up our beginning readers. The robin’s nest activity for short vowel sounds contains 72 eggs with pictures containing short vowels. This activity also contains 92 eggs with CVC words for those students who need an added challenge.
Some of my first grade friends can use a little added practice with consonant digraphs. When you download the robin’s nest activity for consonant digraphs, you’ll receive 48 colorful eggs with pictures containing the sh, ch, th and wh sounds.
