O is for Owl Pellets


Dear helpful, hard working, and awesome students and parents,

This week was really outstanding and fun,

For math I really liked learning the different types of triangles.

In reading I liked doing the Witch of Fourth Street's cause and effect.

For science I liked the wild life volunteer because we got to see what was inside owl pellets and I also liked seeing the stellar jay, the animal skulls, and the leaf tracing station.

For social studies we practiced using indexes to find locations in Los Altos.

In writing I liked learning the different types of writing.

My favorite part of the week was the wild life volunteers because I liked looking in the owl pellets.

From,
Scout #2
