I put some masking tape on some of the felt owls/ or you can use clip art ones- if you want to give them to the kids and use the black felt board with them you can count them , talk about colors, and you can sing a little song with them too.
(Tune of the ten little Indians)
1 little, 2 little , 3 little owls
4 little, 5 little , 6 little owls
7 little, 8 little, 9 little owls
10 little owls say whoo whoo whoo!


Parachute activity:
use the parachute & soft balls (blue bags in the program closet on top of big books)* lift up parachute, kids go under the parachute, walk in a circle holding handles, Make fast waves –shake fast , make slow waves – shake slowly --lay down under the parachute to see if it touches belly or Place soft balls on the parachute to shake them up like popcorn. 

SING:

If your happy and you know it (intro song)
Clap you hands, stomp your feet, shout hooray!
