This time of year, I always have my windows open in my classroom to feel the warm breeze, smell the freshly-cut grass, and listen to the chirping birds. Or, in today's case, smell and hear the Spring rain showers :) This morning, I decided to change my plans and have the students create their very own birdhouses. I taught this lesson a few years ago, but like the simplicity of it. In the past, I have had them draw and paint the birdhouse and leave it at that. But, this time I wanted to add another element...the wallpaper birds.
