I vaguely remember show and tell from K-5 and First Grade. One time I took my gigantic pink stuffed bear. Her name was Miss Pinky and I had won her from VBS. I don’t have her anymore, but I would like to join in with Kelli’s show and tell from There is no Place Like Home. Click the logo to visit other sites that are participating.
This clock is from the Audobon Society. A bird song goes off each hour on the hour. For instance, the owl hoots at 12:00, the woodpecker rat-a-tat-tats at 4:00, the goose honks at 5:00, the robin sings at 7:00…
A very nice feature is the light sensor above the owl’s head. The darker it is the quieter the bird song will be. It doesn’t chirp at night unless we are up late with the light on; then we quickly put our hand over it or turn out the light so the kids don’t hear it.
I like having a sound to tell me when the hour is. I also use the sounds with my children: when the owl hoots it is lunch time, or I’ll tell them that they can play such-and-such until the bird clock goes off, etc.
Sometimes when people are here they say, “What was that?” I reply, “What did you hear?” They say, “It sounded like a bird.” “Oh, that’s my bird clock.” “Your what?” 🙂 I don’t notice it half the time anymore.
Well, that’s my first show and tell. Have a great day!
Edited: It doesn’t bother us here at all; we are quite used to it. There are 2 battery sections so we could just have the clock work without the bird calls.
