students prepared to read Owl Moon by reading many nonfiction
articles about owls, including the Zoobooks owl issue. We also
watched a couple of videos about owls on
United Streaming as
well. We selected pictures of various owls using Google images and
wrote expository paragraphs about owls. Once we acquired our
background knowledge about owls, we read Owl Moon.
students loved the winter story of Owl Moon. We have been
experiencing cold, wintry weather in Illinois, and we can certainly
relate to the setting and descriptions in the story. After reading
the story, we sat in front of the large glass windows of our school
and completed a graphic organizer to help us describe the view of
nature on that particular day. We then wrote a shared writing
response to describe our nature observation.
we used our Kidspiration program to share information that we have
learned about owls. Click HERE to
see our finished graphic organizer. We really enjoyed partaking in this project, and
look forward to viewing all of the other classes' projects online.
Nature Walk: A
View of Chelsea Intermediate School
When we look at the sky, we see the wind making the white clouds
move, and snow falling from the sky. We see black power lines in a
blue sky. We see the yellow sun.
When we look at the trees, hills, and bushes, we see a lot. We see a
nest, a green birdfeeder, and the brown branches of trees. On the
sledding hill, we see snow and dirt, but no one is sledding on it.
We see some snow on the bushes, and some snow blowing away. We also
see some tiny green leaves on the bushes.
When we look at the ground, we see frozen snow. We see patches of
ice. We also see specks of salt. We see tiny footprints in the snow.
In conclusion, this is all we see on a cold, winter day.
