Angry Birds Activities in the Classroom

Seriously- we can learn alot from angry birds. I call it “meet the children where they are at”! Those angry birds are cute, daring, imagninative and angry….just like some of our children. My four year old absolutely loves these birds, so I decided to search for inspiration and bring these fluffy balls into my classroom too! As Easter is fast approaching, I am sure to find a way to bring these birds and their eggs into the holiday theme somehow!

Art Activity – Painting plates (idea found at squidoo) After painting these plates, have the children match the bird to the color word.

I found this link where you can print out faces for each angry bird. It is a balloon template, but I plan on using it to make party favor bags for my sons 4th birthday party. Here’s the link: http://www.thepartyanimal-blog.org/Downloads/Angry_Birds_Balloon_Templates.pdf

  1. I love this website. Thank you so much, you gave me so many great tools to use for my son’s 4th birthday party/sleepover.

  2. I work in an Autistic classroom and I cannot thank you enough for having this!!!! It just might have saved me some serious headaches~ TY TY TY Lisa

  3. Hi Andrea,thaks for all materials,I have just started working as a teacher.So I want to make my lessons more interesting.Excuse me,can you send me some materials about math?Great thanks!

    1. You are most welcome, Aytan. What type of math things are you looking for? What skills are you targeting? I actually have not found the need to create Math materials, except for where the curriculum was lacking. My school uses Pearson digital textbooks (Envision Math) and it comes with great work activities and manipulatives. I also use Everyday Math Calendar Materials and really like those. I hope this helps! -Andrea
