"Owl" bet your class will LOVE this!


I enjoy teaching my class about owls and turkeys during the month of November.
It is the perfect opportunity to:
Have students compare/contrast birds.
Work with the word NOCTURNAL and discover animals that fit this term.
Work with the words WILD and DOMESTICATED and discover animals that fit these terms.
Read informational text and report on the facts.
Read literature about these feathered birds.

You can always invite a turkey or an owl to dinner.
A little "twist" on turkey for Thanksgiving.
What will you serve?
Read the class the book by Eve Bunting A Turkey for Thanksgiving.

One of my all time favorite stories is Owl Babies by Martin Waddell.
It is fun for the class to listen to this story and then gather facts from the details in the story.
And this FREE animated video is wonderful.

And look at these adorable owl treats by POPSUGAR.


And we can't forget the turkey treat by HOMEROOM MOM.


If you like these ideas you might try the complete informational packets here.
They are filled with reading, writing, word work.
