We read this sweet little book this week:
I loved the illustrations in this book! The little white owl loved to tell stories, but the other brightly-colored owls did not like him at first because he was different. Once they heard his stories, they loved him! This book is great for discussing what makes you unique. I have attached a writing prompt for you down below. But check out the owl puppets first:
So sweet! I grouped students and gave each a different color piece of construction paper. One student in each group got a white piece. I also gave each a secondary color to add to their owls. We tore the construction paper and pasted it onto an owl template I found online. Then, we glued them to popsicle sticks. I let each group retell the story with their puppets when they were finished. The kids loved it! They turned out really cute and covered a common core standard, so win, win! Click below to grab the writing prompt.
