    One thought on “Two Blue Jays”

    1. Personal reaction: This book was boring but full of information about birds. The illustrations in this book will capture the students attention. I think this book will keep the students intrigued because they will want to know what the Blue Jays are doing.Purpose: This book could be a read aloud or a independent read for K-3rd graders. If this was a Kindergarten class it would have to be read aloud because of the sentence structures and complex vocabulary (i.e. perched). This book also contains [...]

    2. I would not recommend this book to readers younger than 3rd grade. This book identifies and follows two blue jays. The story takes place in a classroom. Students watch the interactions of the blue jays from their classroom window while they learn interesting facts about nature from their teacher, Miss Dana. I liked this book because it give alot of facts about birds and information about nature. I would allow students to read this book for fun. It could be used to teach about the life of birds.

    3. Personal reaction- I enjoyed this book because it is informative, full of detailed and realistic illustrations, and because it has a lot of value for the classroom. Purposes- This book would be used in a read aloud for enrichment and and informative purposes. It would be especially valuable in a unit about science and nature because it accounts for two blue jays as they create and sustain a nest for their babies. You could present this book in a read aloud and then do various activities with the [...]

    4. This book details the lives of a pair of blue jays as they build a nest in a big fir tree outside the window of a classroom. The students chart the progress as the female bird lays four eggs and then waits for them to hatch. The students then watch as the baby birds grow and grow, finally flying off to take care of themselves. This book would be a great tool to help children become familiar with the life cycle of birds. It would also be beneficial in helping children learn to be close observers [...]

    5. I thought that this book would be a great book to use to help young children in K-5 begin to understand and build knowledge of the concept of time that it takes for eggs to hatch and what the birds had to do in order to prepare and take care of the baby birds. Using this book, you can build on and create lessons that incorporate charting and graphing, counting and addition, and making comparisons with your students.

    6. This book was a great book to read to students during a unit about birds. It did a great job at showing the circle of life of the Blue Jays narrated by a child. The pictures were very detailed and really helped with understanding what was happening throughout the story. I would for sure read this to my future students.

    7. Nice study in basic bird life cycle and kids making observations of the world around them. Has read it every night for two weeks.

    8. Simple book about observing two blue jays and their baby chicks that hatch. Good if you can't get the real thing. :)

    9. Quotidian tale of blue jays who don't do anything out of the ordinary. Good for avid fans of the bird, but not for the lay reader.

    10. School children are delighted to discover a nesting pair of Blue Jays outside their classroom window. They watch and observe the behavior of the birds and are fascinated by the family of birds.

    11. I purchased this book at a public library book sale to add to our literary non-fiction text set. Perfect for teaching not only about blue jays, but the literary non-fiction craft as well. Students observe two blue jays as they build a nest and their babies hatch and fly away. Not very many NF text features, but enough to distinguish it for students. Children interested in birds will enjoy this book.
