Fall Leaves & Gratitude Poem

The Hoot Owls spent some time this week with their buddies, the Fourth Grade, and created vibrantly colorful fall leaves. The end result of this paint-filled activity is loads of beautiful leaves that will be used to create our Gratitude Tree. They also brainstormed ideas for a Gratitude ABCs poem, which represents all of the things that we are thankful for. Hanging out with our Buddies is the best!!!

Johnny Appleseed’s Birthday

The Hoot Owls celebrated Johnny Appleseed’s birthday on September 26th.

They planted apple seeds in front of the school and wore pots on their heads. We hope apple trees will grow very soon!

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!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
