    Two Little Hoot Owls
    Two little hoot owls, sitting on a hill;
    One named Jack and the other named Jill.
    Fly away Jack! Fly away Jill!
    Come back, Jack! Come back, Jill!

    Two little hoot owls, sitting down below;
    One named Fast and the other named Slow.
    Fly away Fast! Fly away Slow!
    Come back, Fast! Come back, Slow!

    Two little hoot owls, feeling very proud;
    One named Quiet [whisper] and the other named Loud [shout]...
    Fly away Quiet! Fly away Loud!
    Come back, Quiet! Come back, Loud!

    Reach for the ceiling, touch the floor.
    Stand up again, let's do some more!
    Touch your shoulders, then your knees, now your elbows, like this, you see.

    Project—Nocturnal Scene:

     

    Our project was similar to this, but we used construction paper for the trees (twigs were tricky to glue!) and real shredded leaf litter to make it more of an autumn scene.  The after-school crowd enjoyed the left-overs--a great craft for all ages!
