Who's Who in Kindergarten?

We love owls--the trick is always when and how to fit owl fun into our curriculum!  Owl Babies by Martin Waddell is a favorite, along with the poem Five Little Owls from homeschoolshare.  I used the owl template from the same website and created a file folder activity with each owl numbered on the back for the children to put in order on the tree.  We used this when we practiced ordinal numbers this fall.  The homeschoolshare link above has tons of owl information and activities too.    

Using different shades of torn brown paper (brown paper bags from the grocery store would work well too), we created a our name-scramble owl.  Each child wrote their name on a brown paper, and then did a scrambled version of their name on a piece they glued as a flap on top.  Since we practice writing our names in the proper "kindergarten way" so much, it was fun for them to make their names in a silly way.  The picture is a little blurry, but hopefully you get the idea!
