Week beginning September 27th

Owls, owls, owls.
We ended oue day last time with a lovely quiet book called White Owl, Barn Owl and that spawned many questions and comments about owls... so I am going to run with it!
We will start with an old favorite, The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear,

and will follow with an informational text about Barn Owls. We have a great collection of puppets in the library whooo will be with us for the stories. Finally, I will have students draw me an owl for display!

There is also a cool website that has all the different owl calls which I will introduce. We will discuss how an author might describe, in words a particular call. The kindergartenters are exploring all over the library now and hopefully taking books of many different topics and interests.
