What I love about printables like this is that it slows down the process. There isn’t a rush to reach the entire alphabet at once.
Focusing on one letter is a great way to have the kids take their time and not feel rushed or pressured. Plus, it makes it super fun to find all the letter N things in our daily lives, too!

Fun ways to use this printable:
There is always more than one way to printables! Printing and using is part of it, but think outside the box to extend the learning time!
I’ve included some ideas below that the kids will also love. Don’t forget to let them also have ideas on what they want to do!
Find a bird’s nest
Put on your boots and hit the road! See if anyone can see nests in the tree and point them out! If you see a lot, start counting them and working on those skills, too!
Just remind the kids never to touch a nest or try to move it – this is just to observe.
Make a nest at home
Talk to the kids about how birds make their nests. While some birds use sticks, grass, and other items from nature, they will also use strings and items they find.
Tear some paper strips and have the kids nest inside a bowl. This is a great way to combine art and learning!
Go bird watching
Watching birds is a relaxing idea and activity to do with the kids. You can try to identify them as you see them, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to!
If you have time to swing by the library to grab a book to help identify birds, that is always helpful to have along the way.
What is the best way to help kids learn to identify birds?
Birdwatching is fun and exciting; however, identifying birds correctly can be pretty challenging upon first exposure.
Introducing a birdwatcher to common regional species can help them gain confidence in their abilities and become better observers of local birds.
One way to start this process is by taking a class on bird identification or signing up for field trips with experienced birders.
Additionally, having resources such as guidebooks or binoculars with helpful added features can make learning about different bird species easier for newcomers.
Finally, engaging in conversations with other, more experienced birders allows one to ask questions, acquire knowledge from others’ visits and observations, and understand when particular types of birds will be more likely to occur.
With these approaches combined, anyone willing to invest their time and effort will have the capacity to learn how to identify birds correctly.
