Mrs. Hewey’s First Grade News

May 8, 2017


Dear Families,

     Last week the children were busy writing their chapter on the habitat of their bird.  They learned where their bird lives, where it nests, and what materials it uses to build its nest

     We have hung a suet bird feeder outside of our window and the class has loved watching and identifying birds who come it.  Last week we saw chickadees and two mockingbirds.

     A teacher from the Maine Audubon came to visit the first graders to do a program about birds’ beaks. The students got to experiment with all sorts of tools and see which tools made it easy to pick up food.  At the hummingbird station, for instance, they tried to suck up liquid with a long eye dropper and some short tweezers, and they found the longer tool that could hold liquid worked best.  Then we looked at pictures of the hummingbird’s beak and talked about how their beaks are long, thin, and made for sucking up nectar from flowers.  Some birds have sharp, curved beaks which help them tear up small animals, while others have short, sharp beaks that are great for cracking seeds and nuts.  Everyone had lots of fun.

     This Friday is our fieldtrip to the Maine Audubon in Falmouth.  We are going to be going outside to see birds in their natural habitats.  We will be leaving at 9:00 and returning by 11:30.  Please have your child bring a jacket and wear sneakers because we will be outside and walking on trails in the woods.

                          All the best,  Kristie
