Owl Themed Alphabet Letter Wheel Craft with Upper and Lowercase Letters
This owl themed alphabet craft activity I fondly call “owl-phabet”. This resource is a super-fun way for students to practice upper & lowercase letters.
Look closely at Ollie the owl’s eyes.
You will see an uppercase letter in one, and a lowercase letter in the other.
Ollie is a "Turn and Learn” alphabet wheel.
Play "I Spy” a letter & have children turn the "eye wheels" 'til they've found both.
They hold their owl in the air, and you can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
You can also play “Whoooo has a clue?” Call on a child to choose a letter, then give 3 clues to the class. For example: “My letter is a vowel; it comes before P and after N. What’s the ”mystery letter?”
Children turn the owl’s “eyes” ’til they’ve found it. “Whoooo was the first? Is that person correct?”
Besides playing games with Ollie, use it as a non-threatening way to assess.
Turn Ollie into an “Owl” miss you!” activity at the end of the year, so that students can review letters over the summer, lest they forget all you’ve crammed into their heads.
For a quick & easy way to make the letter “windows” in the eye, I used a circle paper punch. Also, depending on the season you would like to use this resource in you could use fall colored paper to make the owl or spring colored paper.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a wonderful year.
