This week we focused on Owls for the letter “O”…here’s our learning board for the week:
We also made this adorable Owl Paper Plate Craft. (This one took a little more involvement on my part as far as assembling the pieces, but once I had it put together, she had lots of fun coloring it.)
Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. This was a sweet book about three owl babies who wake up in the middle of the night to find their mommy gone. They wait for her and miss her and are so happy when she returns.
The Littlest Owl by Caroline Pitcher. This was another cute story about the littlest owl in the family, always left behind. He keeps trying and trying to fly until one night a huge storm forces the owl family from their tree and the littlest owl has no choice but to fly.
The Barn Owl (Animal Lives) by Sally Tagholm. This was a very informative book specifically about barn owls. It goes through each season of a year and what the barn owls are experiencing in that season, including the birth of their babies. This was a great book if you’re wanting to learn a lot about owls.
Owls by Gail Gibbons. Another very informative book about all different types of owls. I had no idea there were about 140 different types of owls! I also didn’t know owls could turn their heads upside down. One word of warning…this book is not for the squeamish…lots of discussion about owl’s and their hunting habits. Definitely another great book if you want to learn a lot.
Verse: Psalm 30:2 “O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”
In our Big Thoughts for Little People: ABC’s to Help You Grow book, the theme for “O” was Obey, which I of course, loved. If you haven’t checked out this book yet, you should!
