Owl Power


It is the time of year to study owls.  The hoots can be heard throughout the night as they call in their mates of prior years and start to nestle down.

We learned all about owls during this class.  We sang an owl song with an owl puppet  to the tune of skip to my lou, it went like this:  The owl in the tree goes who who who, owl in the tree goes who who, who, owl in the tree goes who, who, who? who, who who, who are you?  “We went around the circle with each child holding the puppet and responded with their name.  For example we sang, “michelle, that is who, michelle, that is who, michelle that is who.  That is whooooooohooohooo!  It took a while but each child had time with the puppet and I think they liked that.

We read the story “Good-Night Owl” because it is an interactive animal sound book:


We had a few visitors in class today:  It was a hoot!
