Mushrooms | Cheerily Cheer up with two little Robins

Dear Mushrooms,

Inspired by last week’s Robin spotters, our shared interest in worms (both Robins’s food and our windowsill kale red-wiggler composters), today we are singing a song.  I looked for something with simple rhymes, for poetry month and here’s our finger play diddy::

Two little Robins sitting on a hill  (sitting really still, etc.)

One named Jack, the other named Jill

Fly away Jack, fly away Jill

Come back Jack, come back Jill

Sibley's guide on hand, and some little hand held birds for our song. Maybe you'd like to make two little birds? Maybe you'd like to color a bird spotting scope?

Also, as part of our classroom chores, we're checking on those willow branches we put in water last week.  Does anyone want to try their hand at sawing off the end of a new branch today?

Bring your rainboots for our mini hike, I wonder if we’ll see any Robins, and inspect where they’ve been digging.  Are the Pinetum field worms wriggling around yet, or is it still too cold?

 Today
Rain or drizzle, mainly after 11am. High near 42. East wind around 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
See you soon,
Ms. D

  1. No sawing today, and nothing happened with out willow branches in water – but plenty of exploring worms inside. We imagined ourselves as cold, still worms under the snowy blanket, then beginning to wiggle as the snow melts and spring warms.
    Then we took a look at the Sibley book, decorated our bird scopes, and found many Robins in the Pinetum. Our challenge for next week, bring cardboard coffee cozies for making binoculars. I can already tell you the theme for next week, because we LOVED listening to the spring peepers on our walk around the pond! Thanks everyone for joining us on our special chilly morning.
