I purchased Deanna Jump's Owl Unit and LOVED some of her ideas. I also added a few of my own so it would go great with what we are currently learning.
I found this poem that I used when I first introduced our project. We currently use poems to work on our "Phonics Chunk" identification. I couldn't find who the author was so if anyone knows, please share:) You can download a student copy by clicking HERE. Deanna also has a cute poem in her unit.
We read "Owls" by Gail Gibbons which is a great informational book! We used the information from the book to complete a tree map using "have, can, and are" and then made these super cute owl books which is also in Deanna's unit.
The students did some center activities with "ow". They had to read sentences around the room and write the words with "ow". Then they went back to the table and made a new sentence with the words.
They also made "ow" sentence books by unscrambling sentences and adding them to the pages.
