Two For One: Learning How To Use Binoculars While Learning To Read

We are enjoying our beautiful days when they come. Learning can happen just as much as outdoors too!! The kids are curious as ever and now they have been introduced to bird watching, varieties of butterflies, and more airplanes flying high while getting a better view with BINOCULARS! To give them extra practice and to sneak some more phonics work in I created this work that is perfect for outdoors learning time.

 The supplies I used were a pair of good quality binoculars, index cards, and push pins. I used the push pins because it was easier to stay in place than using tape on the fence. Now after gathering the supplies choose the sounds or words you like the child(ren) to practice place them outside in the desired location.
 Next invite a child who would like to do this work. Not one child declined this activity when asked :)
 The point of interest is learning how to focus. Jessica needed a little help at first .
  Not too long after she focused right in on the sounds, and was screaming "I can see it", "I can see at"!! There you go a proud reader and a confident binocular user.

  1. Field glasses are one of the most convenient and most extensive of all visual equipment. Virtually anyone who usually spends much time outdoors has a pair of binoculars. They are almost a necessity for the uranologist, seeker, salt water anglers, boater, sports fan, and experienced visitor.Inside the binoculars or telescope is a series of cup contacts. The contact closest the eye is known as the eyepiece. The contact furthest from the eye is known as the purpose contact. In the housing between the eyepiece and the purpose contact are blends of other contacts and cup prisms. These are used to increase or extend lighting. A longer lighting path gives more magnifier.
