All About Owls

It's school vacation this week and we had record attendance at today's story time! Our featured story was Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, the story of a child and her father who visit the woods at night in search of owls. We also read Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, about three baby owls waiting for Mother Owl to come home. We referred to two nonfiction books, Owls by Gail Gibbons and All About Owls by Jim Arnosky, where we looked at the pictures and read owl facts. Did you know it's against the law to hurt or to bother an owl?
Here's our craft! The body is a paper lunch bag stuffed with old tissue paper and folded down. Brown paper wings and big yellow eyes make the bag look owl-ish. Feathers on the front could be drawn with markers or glued with paper scraps - or both! Each of our owls looked different and unique!
