We're reading Owl Moon next week. Does anybody have any neat ideas to do with this book?
Thanks

i used this book to teach visualizing with the five sense. after i had the kiddos try to write down what they visualized in their independent reading book using their five sense. they liked it!

I Agree - Visualize

Read the book aloud and do not show pictures. Have them draw what they are visualizing. Then share pictures and discuss.

Then reread the story with pictures. Discuss how the artists pics were alike and different from your own. This could be done with a Venn diagram.

Last year, before they knew anything about this story (including the title), I played the sound of a great horned owl hooting. (I had Googled it and found a site that had the sound).

I told the kids that the sound had something to do with the book we'd be reading, and they had to guess what it was.

It was really fun as they listened and brainstormed what animal might be making the noise. Many thought it was a whale!

After someone figured out it was an owl, we looked at photos and video of great horned owls on my SmartBoard, then I read the story.

Hope this helps!
