Little Owl is irresistible. You know why I picked this book up, don’t you? How could I not look at this book. However, the first time I saw the book it was a board book. As much as I tried to convince myself to buy a board book, I decided not to. Thankfully, the Scholastic Book Fair “helped” me out.
Little Owl Book Introduction
I think the intention of the book is pretty obvious. Yes, it’s about an owls night. Not surprisingly, it also about other animals in the night. It’s a great book to start the discussion about nocturnal animals. He talks about who he might visit and who is asleep. The book also ends as little owl and other nocturnal animals go to sleep, the morning glories open and the rooster crows.
Students can practice sorting for nocturnal and not nocturnal (which is called diurnal). The freebie today has a quick sort. The other activity, helps students with text gradients. When we have opportunities for playing with text gradients, students start to use the gradients in their writing. Little Owl is great with this. Want new ways to say “said?” How about croaked, chirped, whispered, crows, or sang. Let Owl help.
