Four Weeks: Coastal Birds Nature Study

 I had the opportunity to lead four weeks of Wander and Wonder Beach: Our Coastal Birds.   It was a gather-read-explore-paint sort of series. Four birds, four adventures (and we did see what we set out to see each week, phew!). This time I ended the class with a 'Draw and Paint Along with Me', which the kids did really well with and enjoyed. It was tricky for me because not only had I not done it, I'm not a confident artist and I had to make the drawings simple enough that I could explain how to do it. They not only enjoyed it, but asked for more. (phew!)  My favorite classes to lead are these wander and wonder sort of classes.  They are a lot of work, but worth it. Love living here and learning about the coast along with them.
