I have been reading the book "Owls in the Family" by Farley Mowat. The children are really enjoying the adventures of Billy so far. I thought it would be interesting to dissect owl pellets so I ordered them from a science catalogue. When they came in we went to work. The children were so engrossed with the work that all you could hear for an hour was the excitement of finding another skull or a leg bone or some ribs. It was really interesting to discover the remains of rodents, voles and shrews. In case you didn't know, owls swallow their food whole and then cough up the fur and the bones in a nice, compact package called an owl pellet.

These pheasants went to a farm last night. They will stay at the farm for about 4 months before they are released into the wild. This project is supported by the local Wildlife Federation.

We've been incubating pheasant eggs for the last three weeks. We started out with 30 eggs. In the end we only had three chicks hatch. It was disappointing but at least the children got to hold the chicks.

I didn't know that celebrating the 100th day of school could be so much fun! My grade 2/3 class spent the whole morning with the kindergarten class and their substitute teacher, Mrs. Bottom. Mrs. Topp was feeling a little under the weather. Did you know that Mrs. Bottom is 100 years old? Mr. Silversides' class also had a substitute. His name was Mr. Kranky and boy, did he live up to his name. The children did a variety of activities together. We went for a scavenger hunt for 100 "kisses". We made cup stacks with 100 cups and we made necklaces out of 100 Fruitloops. We even had a visit from Zero the Hero. During the afternoon my children shared their collections of 1000 things.

We've been doing yoga for the last couple of weeks. The children are really enjoying it. I'm even getting a little more flexible.
