Good morning Little Owl’s!
Thank you all for the wonderful parade last week! It was an awesome way for us to see you all one more time and to say “farewell” until we can be together again! We hope we can have some kind of an Arts Festival and Portfolio Viewing in August. As soon as we have a plan we will let each class know.
The teachers will be working on modified end of the year Progress Reports which will be mailed out to each of you in the beginning of June.
We wanted to send one more message with curriculum ideas to close out the school year. If we were in school we would be doing lots of exploration of flowers, planting and gardening and lots of outdoor fun! Attached are some ideas for you to do with your family.
Here are some books that go along with flowers and gardens:
Planting a Rainbow, by Lois Ehlert
Lola Plants a Garden, by Anna McQuinn
The Tiny Seed, by Eric Carle
Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, by Kate Messner and Christopher Silas Neal
There are lots of poems about springtime. Here is one you can learn!
Springtime is here.
The sky is bright and blue.
Robins are chirping,
And the sun feels warm too.
The flowers are blooming.
Green grass starts to grow.
Kites are flying in the sky
As the wind begins to blow.
We hope you are all having fun with your families and we know you will all be ready to come back to school real soon!
For parents, if we can be of assistance with anything, please let us know. We check emails daily and can always be reached. We truly miss you all and are sincerely sad that we were unable to complete the school year. We know you are all doing an amazing job and your children are all very resilient. They will all be great and will do fine wherever their next school journey takes them, whether it’s on to Kindergarten or back to Owl’s Crossing in the Fall.
Please keep in touch and hopefully we will see you on the Beach!

Hello To You!
Good Morning Owl’s!
We miss you all! Thank you so much for sending in all the fun pictures from Crazy Hat Day and The Week of the Young Child. They have been posted on our website under “April Gallery”. Now onto some fun work!
Guess who loves rain? WORMS!
It’s been raining so much over the last few days, we challenge you to get on your rain boots and rain coats and go outside with a grown up in search of WORMS! Find a good spot of soil and start digging. With all of this rain, they should be easy to find!
What you will need:
- Spoon or shovel
- Pail or plastic container
- Magnifying glass if you have one, no problem if you don’t
Collect what you can find and watch them to see how they move. Worms come to the top of the soil during and after rain and scientists think they do this for migration, moving from one area to another. And don’t forget, after you watch your worms for awhile; make sure you put them back in your garden. They help our flowers grow!
Other Fun Facts about WORMS!
- Worms breathe through their skin
- Worms that come out at night are called NIGHTCRAWLERS
- Worms have no bones or skeletons
- The largest worm ever found was over 22 feet long!
Fun Book ideas about worms:
Wiggling Worms at Work, Wendy Pfeffer
Worm Weather, Jean Taft
Little Wiggle Worm
(Tune of I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little wiggle worm,
Watch me go!
I can wiggle fast,
Or very, very slow.
I wiggle all around,
Then back I go.
Down into the ground,
To the home I know!
We hope you have fun splashing around today. Please have a grown up take your picture of you looking for worms. We will continue to post galleries so that we can see our friends!
We miss you all and hope to see you soon!

Good morning Little Owls,
We hoped you enjoyed the video “Hello” from all of your teachers at Owl’s Crossing! We can’t wait to see you again real soon at school.
This week’s challenge is to use materials around your home to create a “heart” to display outside your home or in a window to support the people in our community who keep us safe and healthy. If a grown up would like to send us a picture of you for our gallery with your creation, please send to email@example.com.
When you are out for a bike ride or a car ride, see how many “hearts” you can count along the way. Happy Counting!
Some good Community Helper Books are:
Whose Hat is This by Sharon Katz Cooper
Berenstein Bears Jobs Around Town by Stan Berenstein
Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do by Katherine Heling
Have fun and we will see you all soon!

Hi Little Owls!
This week in April is “The Week of the Young Child”. The themes for the next three days are Work Together Wednesday, Artsy Thursday and Family Friday. Our challenge over the next few days is to pick one of the themes to do with your family. See what you can build with Legos, Blocks, Cups, etc.; create a Work of Art that you can hang on your wall; or go through family photos or draw pictures of everyone in your family to create a “Family Tree”. Send us an email with either a photo of what you created or a have a grown up send us an email with details. Have fun and we can’t wait to see your work!
Also, keep sending in those “Crazy Hat Day” pictures. We are collecting all photos and will create a gallery for you to see of your friends!
Good morning OCP!
We hope this finds you all well! We are still hoping to open school on May 4th, depending on what the Governor decides. The Scituate Public Schools announced that they their last day will be June 19th. We are going to keep our last days of school on June 22nd and 23rd with Pre K Closing Programs on June 24th.
Attached you will find a letter from Miss Kim, Inspire Kids Yoga. She is offering free yoga classes on Zoom. If interested, email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now to the fun stuff! In April we always do a “Crazy Hat Day” at OCP. We thought it might be fun to challenge you to make a “Crazy Hat” with items that you have around your home. If you would like, you could have a grown up take your picture wearing your “Crazy Hat” and send it to us at email@example.com. We will post a “Crazy Hat Day” Gallery on our website.
In addition, keep an eye out for a note from your teacher. Your teachers will be writing letters to everyone this week and mailing them to your home. We can’t wait to see you all!

An Owl’s Crossing Favorite Song:
One little kite, up in the blue,
Along came another, then there were 2.
Two little kites, over the tree,
Along came another, then there were 3.
Three little kites, watch them soar,
Along came another, then there were 4.
Four little kites, they act so alive,
Next came the last one, and then there were 5!
