I’m happy to share with you today a review of the Birds of a Feather Activity Book from All About Learning Press.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of Birds of a Feather in order to honestly review it here. I also get commissions for purchases made through affiliate links in this post.
What is Birds of a Feather?
Birds of a Feather is a 150-page activity book that helps students review reading and spelling concepts in a fun and engaging way. The book is full of colorful illustrations of birds, and each activity is accompanied by a fun fact or trivia tidbit about birds.
The book contains 16 different activities, including:
- Word search puzzles
- Matching games (such as “Match the baby bird to the mama bird” or “Match the feather to the correct bird.”)
- Fill-in-the-blank activities
- Sequencing activities
- Creative writing prompts
- And more!
The activities are designed to be challenging but not too difficult, and they can be used with students of all ages.
Specific Ways to Use Birds of a Feather
I would first of all recommend that you laminate the game pieces in Birds of a Feather so that you can use them over and over. You can use a dry-erase marker or a Sharpie. (Test it first, but if you use a Sharpie, which will last longer than a dry-erase marker, you can usually remove it with rubbing alcohol.)
What words should you put on the card?
- Sight words
- Spelling words
- Vocabulary words (from science or the WordUp Vocab show)
- People of history
- Places to find on a map or globe
- Music symbols, types of notes, key signatures, etc.
