"Nocturnal Animals" Letter of the Week

   We will be learning about nocturnal animals this week.  We will focus on skunks, armidillos, mice, bats, and opossum.  Please ask your child the following questions.  Do skunks smell bad all of the time?  How do armidillos protect themselves?  How do bats help us?  Who is the only marsupial in Oklahoma?  When are nocturnal animals active? What do omnivores eat? Which nocturnal animal would you like to be for one night?  Our letter is "N",  and our song is "There's a Mouse".
There's a mouse, a mouse, a mouse in the house oh no!  There's a mouse, a mouse, a mouse in the house.  Where'd it go?©Jen Jones
