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 made their own Owl Tree Maps based on the information we learned. There were lots of resources around the room to use. The most helpful resource of course were our huge owl charts. :)
This is our owl poem that we did this week.
The kids were given a mixed up version of the poem and they put it in the correct order and glued it to paper.
Our book for Shared Reading was a book I wrote called, Go To Sleep Owl we read it on the smartboard each day and did lots of word work. I printed out a few copies of the book and word and picture cards so that the kids could rebuild the story during literacy centers.
This is our adorable owl book we made this week. Each day I gave them a scrambled sentence which related to something we had learned the day before. They unscrambled the sentence, glued it in their book and illustrated it. Using scrambled sentences is a great way to discuss sentence structure... a sentence starts with a capital, has spaces between the words and ends with punctuation. They can use these clues along with getting their mouth ready to say the first sound to help them figure out the order of the words in the sentence.
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:
A few examples from our Morning Messages.
Dissecting owl pellets to see what the Barn owls ate. The kids LOVED this Scientific investigation.
We used owl manipulatives and work mats to find out how many different ways we could make five.
