Welcome to the "Here Birdy, Birdy" Kindergarten Telecollaborative Project

Now that fall has officially launched, our project is going full speed ahead.  We want to officially welcome the students from Texas, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Costa Rica to the project.  It is an honor to work with all of you.  All teams need to keep an eye on the project calendar as we continue through the project.  We'll be uploading digital photos of your bird feeders soon.


Who are the teams?

Classroom #1 Andale, Kansas Classroom #2 Fort Worth, Texas Classroom #3 - Oakdale, Pennsylvania Classroom #4 - Brookfield, Connecticut Classroom #5 -  Tres Rios, Costa Rica


What would you need to do for the project?


Weekly total commitment - 15 minutes


Obtain the following:


  1. Hanging bird feeder - this does not need to be an expensive product, just strong enough to hold birdseed and a few birds
  2. Something from which to hang the bird feeder - we use a simple shepherd's hook.
  3. Birdseed
Add the following activities to your daily calendar time - Takes less than 5 minutes daily.
  1. Count the number of birds at the feeder - shade in the bar graph with those numbers
  2. Tally the colors of birds at the feeder
  3. Measure how many cups of seed was added to the feeder that day


On Fridays

  1. Post your weekly data to our project wiki - Here.  This only takes a minute (Really!)



  1. Upload digital photos of your class learning through our project (Names are not required) to the wiki. 
  2. Share student drawings
  3. Post student reflections and messages to the other partner schools on our wiki.


How long will the project run?

We'll launch the project on the first day of Autumn, and end on the first day of Spring.  Even if you can't start on Sept 21, we'd still be interested in working with you.
