Also this week, we are breaking out the OWLS!!! I love owls, of course, but this week we in our Fall into Writing Book, we are writing about owls. We read a great Science Facts book from scholastic called Incredible Owls. Today we brainstormed and completed the circle map and tree map for sentence planning.
|I put all of the scrap paper into bags with all the parts of the owls. My peer mentor traced the belly and wings on to the pretty paper. I am going to let the kids pick the kind of paper they want.|
|This is what else is in the bag. An Owl shape, eyes, beak and feet.|
|Here are two versions of this owl. The one on the left is what I have hanging on my classroom door. The kids are going to make the ones on the right.|
|Here are the templates to make the Owls. Click the links below for each one.|

If you are looking for something to use in Writing for Thanksgiving--I have completed a great Common Core aligned unit. It has tons of Graphic Organizers, writing pages and posters to use for making Thanksgiving Comparisons.
