EC in the library

EC students are inquiring into making observations and stories.  They had a chance to put the two strands together in the library this week.

A bulbul fledgling, rescued by some teachers’ children, has been cared for in the library for about two weeks.  The EC children watched it for about a minute.

Children then said what they’d seen and heard – fluttering wings, twittering, a yellow bottom.  Ms. Karen answered questions about feeding and caring for the bird.

EC kids were then transfixed by a story about a young mole who rescued a baby bird and struggled with whether to keep it as a pet or release it.

Some EC children agreed that letting the bird fly free was the best thing to do.   Some said they would have liked to keep the bird.   We agree.   But the library bird will be released in about a week, once it is flying and eating independently.
