Can you guess what we have been studying this week in our preschool?
The farms is just bursting with them. Water birds because of the pond. Wood birds because of the woods. Field birds because of the fields.
Blue birds, blue jays, robins, woodpeckers, chickadees, goldfinches, crows, sparrows, cardinals, and even a heron.
We've looked at bird nests. (Don't you love the look of amazement on their faces!) We've talked about how birds hatch and have hollow bones. We've counted all the different kinds and talked about why God gave them differences. We built an Ella and Ezra sized bird nest. We read books about birds. We sat and watched a woodpecker go to town on one of the oak trees with the binoculars. We painted with feathers. We fed the birds. We read how God cares for even the tiniest sparrow.
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
