Searching through the owl pellet to find bones.
Comparing the bones to the chart to determine what animal it is.
Getting started taking apart the owl pellet
Now that we have learned all about the Great Horned Owl we have begun constructing him. The children signed up for different parts to build and have been working hard on her. We have also been adding information about the Great Horned Owl to our fact books.
The children have been writing facts in their fact books about the Great Horned Owl. We also measured our wing span to compare it to the Great Horned Owls.
We also introduced different challenges to our manipulative and block center. The children have been lining up dominoes to see how many they can get to fall down. They are then filming it with the iPad to see how it works and if there is an error, they can watch the video to determine what they need to change to make it work.
We also voted to change our dramatic play center into a bookstore! We have been busy figuring out everything we need for the bookstore, including books and money. The children have decided they can earn money by writing books for the bookstore. They are very excited about setting up our bookstore!!
- As I am sure you heard, we have the blessing of having an intern in our room this semester. Miss Whiten is joining us from ASU. She has already done a great job! It is so exciting to have another teacher in the classroom to help with projects and learning. The children already love her! She will be with us until March 11.
- Please remember that your children need to wear tennis shoes for PE on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
