A heavy dose of story vocabulary will assist language learners with words such as waddle, gnawed, clover, hovered, fluttered, gaze, croaked, chirped, rustled, glide, dew, caw.
In addition to story vocabulary, I included nocturnal vocabulary too! Words include possum, hedgehog, skunk, beaver, turtle, fireflies, raccoon, moth, frog, cricket, fox, bat.
This unit wouldn't be complete without owl vocabulary. Words include nocturnal, diurnal, raptor, carnivore, talons, facial disc, ear tuft, plumage, visual field, nesting, branching, migration.
Provided are several options for recording vocabulary words. Option one includes a vocabulary book with clipart images. Option two includes blank vocabulary response pages. Option three includes an interactive journal page with all clipart images.
Reread the story throughout the week using my prepared interactive skills pages. Included are essential questions, flip flaps for note taking, and a student page for informal assessment. Each of the above options are provided for nouns, verbs, predators/prey and the life cycle of a barn owl.
You'll find engaging comprehension response sheets for compare/contrast, cause/effect, story maps, and sequence of events.
Engage students while reading by interacting with sequence cards in a pocket chart or glue cards to a tongue depressor for retelling props.
Support your young learners with an emergent reader to provide students with fluency practice with easy to read sight words! Little Owl, Little Owl What Do You See? is my students' favorite reader!
This balance literacy and science unit has a fun nocturnal research book with various characters from the story!
Follow up your learning with an owl pellet dissection. Provided are response pages and bone charts to help assist in your lab.
