The Little White Owl and a Freebie!

The Little White Owl is all about friendship and accepting the differences in people (owls, too!)
We created a chart by describing what good friends do...

The owls below are by some teacher friends of mine...cute, right?  I love that they used scrapbook paper and newspaper to create the artwork.  One interesting idea would be to take your scrapbook paper and instead of using it all for a project like this, you could copy the decorative paper and I bet it would look almost just like the paper she used below.  And you'd still have your original paper to use down the road for another project!

Super cute hanging int he hallway!  Thank you Paige and Kelly!

 I have seen owls like this on Pinterest before, here is the link I pinned a while back

Then  we did some directed drawing of owls and labeled them, Little (insert color word) Owl..not all my kiddos had gotten to this step when I snapped the pics!

  2. I absolutely love the White Owl and the colors are amazing. Thanks for sharing your fun activities. This time of year it seems like the kiddos act more like brothers and sisters instead of friends, it's time for a break from each other.

  3. I've been looking for an activity to use with this book! Thanks for sharing such a great activity!

  4. So cute! I have an owl theme this year and we painted owls at the beginning of the year. I love the scrapbook paper idea and the owl anchor chart. Great ideas!
