A new twist on recycling

The girls each had to do an oral report on a bird today.

Robin chose the quetzal, absorbed (and wrote down) the information we found for her, organized it by category, and practiced her 3-minute report several times.

Julia can neither take nor read notes (although she's getting there), but she colored in a map of her bird's range, drew pictures of the foods it eats and the color and number of its eggs, and learned why it was chosen as Costa Rica's national bird. And she took the empty nest (they build a new one each time) in to show the class. Yup, she picked the clay-colored robin.

I wish I could hear both of their reports! Of course, I'd need a translation...
