The Hoot Owl class has been learning about animals that live in and around ponds. After many art projects, books and songs, the Hoot Owls went on a field trip to Heather Farms in Walnut Creek. It was a fun day walking around the pond, having a picnic lunch, and playing on the playground.
April 14th is International Moment of Laughter Day. The Hoot Owl class, along with their parents, enjoyed many moments of laughter this morning. From dancing the “Tooty Ta,” to building with jelly beans and toothpicks, to making their mother an Easter bonnet, to giving their father a shave, our room was alive with laughter. Today, we will have fun!
During March, the Hoot Owls have been learning about sea life. This week the Hoot Owl class went on a field trip to Crab Cove in Alameda where they learned about some of the creatures found in San Francisco Bay. The children walked the beach during low tide and found many shells, seaweed and of course crabs. After a visit to the aquarium, we ended our field trip with a picnic and a game of tag!
The Hoot Owl class has been busy this winter. They watched a shaving cream cloud make rain, painted umbrellas and sprayed them with water, painted on ice, made mud and ate it with worms for snack, and the most favorite, played with snow.
Now we hope it stops raining for a few days. Maybe when we take down the rain clouds hanging in our room, the rain will stop!
