Woo hoo and hoot hoot 700 followers! Doin’ the happy dance.
Thank you so much for helping me reach this milestone.
I truly appreciate my loyal followers.
I know it sounds a bit silly, but it’s exciting and energizing for me to see this number grow.
So, whoooo deserves something special? You do!
I hope you enjoy these Silly Shaped Owls.
They match my Silly Shaped Owl emergent reader.
I’ve been designing “Silly Shaped Animals” since 2009, when some of my ESL students were having a difficult time remembering 2D shapes.
It all started one January with the silly shaped penguins and has blossomed into quite a menagerie that my students not only LOVE, but has been extremely successful in helping them identify 2D shapes.
Since it’s fall, I thought the owls would be the perfect FREEBIE to celebrate.
There are lots of ways you can use them.
* Make a laminated set for a wall display or bulletin board. "Shape knOWLedge!"
* Hold them up as giant flashcards.
* Cut them in half to make puzzles for an independent math center.
* Play the game “4 Corners” by selecting 4 and suspending them from the ceiling in each corner of your room.
* Give students a choice and have them make their own.
Older students can write attributes on the back.
I used brown paper, but you could also offer bright & neon-colored options.
I'm sure your little princesses would enjoy making a purple & hot pink one. "Electric lime green" with turquoise paper, would also be eye catching.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, once again sending out a sincere thank you to everyone who has helped me reach this goal. Wishing you a school year that’s really something to hoot about.
