Mister Owl Story Time

Let the owl puns begin! "Owl" jump right into this week's story time! "WHO" would believe i'd have so much fun! *Gigglesnort*

We started our storytime with WOW! Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood. An adorable segue into our topic with a good 'hook' that the kids could enjoy as well as lots of colors.

Ten Little Owls

Next, we utilized some laminated owls I had to sing Ten Little Owls (sitting in a tree tonight). We really had to wiggle our fingers first to warm them up because it is chilly out this morning!

Our next story was Whooo's there? by Mary Serfozo. I would point out the animal on the page and ask the kiddos what it was before reading the paragraph. This was another good one with a repetitive phrase through out which made it rhyme-y.

Five Little Owls

For my "flannel board" story I printed the pictures found here. (Click to download the pdf and the printable that I used as well as the lyrics are on the last two page. However, there are some other great items that can be used in this packet.) and laminated them. I put velcro on the owls that coordinated with spots of velcro on the tree. I pulled each one off one by one as I read the story.
The owl pulled off so you can see the velcro

Finally, our last book has the BEST illustrations in my opinion, The Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na. We pointed out all the different animals and I asked if they could sleep like the animals in the book (One eye open, two eyes open, etc.)

He was a real 'hoot' to make!

Our craft for the day was an owl of their very own. It was a combination of several templates but mostly the one found here (Which will be added later since we have new computers and I can't find the link. :( ).
