The Little White Owl

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.

  2. I just searched for clipart on the Internet, they cut it out, and then they pasted the paper on. Hope this helps!
