O is for Owl

O is for Owl.  The owl is the totem animal of Pallas Athena, Athens, and academics.  A large oval makes a simple body for the owl.  Small circles form the bird’s iconic eyes.  A triangle represents the bird’s beak.  The children can draw pupils in the eyes and semi-circles to make wings.  

Jane Yolen’s Caldecott winning Owl Moon is an enchanting winter read.  As the teacher reads the call of the owl, children may join in and interact with the text.
