It's Owl Right! Owl fun and Freebies!

Learning about owls is always so much fun!
This was the perfect opportunity to learn about the "ow" sound.
This is the chart of words we thought of. Notice that there is also a place to record ou words.


Our Cutie Patootie Owl Glyphs... There is a free download for this activity at the bottom of this post.  :)



We made a graph to show our data for each question.

 
A close up of our owl glyphs.


Shhhh......sleeping owls.


We made a picture chart for some of the owl vocabulary we learned.
Doing this together gets them ready for the vocabulary work we will do in our Bat unit 
that's coming up.


We dissected owl pellets!  If you haven't ever done this it is a must.  
It is so stinkin' cool.  I order my pellets from owlpellet.com
I order one pellet for every three kids.

Before we started we made our predictions.
NOTE:  I added this recording sheet to the owl unit.



Digging in....
They have gloves,  a toothpick and a bone chart.




Matching up the bones.

  2. Hi Deanna! I love reading your blog! I have a quick question about your classroom library. I only have room for 12 tubs of books for the kids to access (I have WAY more books). How are you organizing these? I noticed that you had some tubs labeled "picture books" and "non-fiction". I am having a hard time getting away from my old categories. I would love to hear your ideas on this topic.
    Thank you!

  6. The owl pellets are very cool- I wonder if there are any other animals that you can dissect what they ate? I bet teacher pellets would be very interesting- we eat all kinds of weird stuff!!
    Love your anchor charts!

  14. Those huge owls are awesome! I have an owl theme, so you've got my wheels spinning. We did owls last week, brainstormed, planned and wrote sentences and made a cute little owl too. Love the owl vocabulary.

  15. I love all of your owl ideas! I'm very interested in doing the owl pellet lesson. Could you tell me exactly which product you order from the owl pellet website? There are lots of choices of owl pellets. I'm not sure which ones to order. I found the bone sorting sheet listed.
    Thank you!

  16. I absolutely LOVE your owl activities! Next year I want to have owl week in addition to bat week and pumpkin week. :) I've been a cow fanatic for years and couldn't give them up but I LOVE owls too so my classroom board reads "Who's in the Mood for Learning?" with an owl and a cow! (Too funny). Do you have any cow resources? Just curious... I am in awe of what you do. I'm still a newbie in the blog world and now the Teachers Pay Teachers world. You are an inspiration!

    P.S. This may be a silly question but how do you link to your blog in a reply box? Usually I can figure things out but this is something that keeps eluding me!

  18. I'm so glad I'm not the only person who likes to have her kids dissect owl pellets in kinder! Other teachers make fun of me for doing it. I am totally fascinated by it. I find when the teacher is excited about something the kids are equally excited. Thank you for all of your hard work and inspiration. You make me want to be a better teacher every day for my kids.
