The children are learning all about owls this week. We had the opportunity to work on those fine motor muscles, work with tracing lines, squeezing some play dough and creating our own owls with bath scrubbies. We were also blessed with a visit from the Zoo Man. He brought several interesting friends for us to meet.
The Zoo Man brought a cockatiel, a huge tortoise, a blue tongue lizard and some giant hissing cockroaches. A few of our very brave owls even got a chance to hold the cockroaches! What a fun experience for all.
We rounded out our day with a little art. The children had a great time making their own owls using bath scrubbies and wiggly eyes. They chose how to design their owls and I have to say I was impressed that the eyes and beak made it into the correct spot almost every time!
Here you will find little snippets of our days together. When my children were in preschool and would come home I would always ask, "So, what did you do today?". All they ever said was, "Played." That didn't tell me much. I hope this blog will be a place to share what we have done and help you ask more directed questions of your child. You will see first hand just what we do after you kiss your little one goodbye in the morning. It will also be a great place to visit and see just how much your child has grown and learned throughout the year.
