The kids had so much fun learning about owls this week. Their excitement was so contagious that when I was observed this week (we don’t know ahead of time when our administrators are coming they just pop in and do our formal observations unnanounced) my assistant principal didn’t want to leave! The kids were teaching him lots of cool facts about owls!
Here are two of our charts that we made this week. They say… Owls have…. and Owls are…. we also made one that said Owls can… We used shared writing to record the information we learned on the charts.
The kids were given a mixed up version of the poem and they put it in the correct order and glued it to paper.
This sentence says, Owls are excellent hunters. The illustration shows all of the characteristics that owls possess that help them hunt. Sharp tallons, great eyesight, etc:
Poor Ollie! I don’t think he enjoyed hearing us talk about some of the types of animals owls eat. He was a little nervous when he found out he was on the list. 🙂
