Home- To- School Connection

Reciew with your child what he does for lunch. If your child brings lunch, discuss how e beings lunch to school. Tell him that Junie B. is so thrilled with her new lunch box that she can’t take her eyes off it. Have him guess what might be on it, offering hints when necessary. For example, “It came from a nature store” or “It shows certain kinds of animal babies.” Once he “guesses” the answer, ask your child: “What makes a bird a bird?” Identifying characteristics such as feathers, beaks, feet, and wings and what functions or purposes each serves. Then ask about what birds he knows or have heard about in particular. Have him share some of their favorite bird stories.
