Activities
Five Little Owls
Five little owls sitting in a tree
One flew away!
How many do you see?
One, two, three, four.
Four little owls sitting in a tree

Three little owls… etc.

O-W-L
We spelled out the word OWL using letters I printed and laminated, then stuck onto the dry erase board with double-sided tape. Once we went over the letters used, I added an S and explained how that made the word plural. We then added other letters to the beginning of the word to find rhymes.






Craft
I printed out this owl craft from First School and the children pasted them onto a piece of brown construction paper then colored them in. Volunteers cut out the pieces ahead of time for the toddlers, while the preschoolers cut their own out.
