Going Owling

So, I've been owling with my class. Owllow me to explain. I started a mini owl unit cause I love owls. We read this book, one of my absolute favourites, it has so much to offer.
I hardly ever read a book without stopping to notice things and we stopped often for this one. The language is so rich. We also stopped right before the owl makes his appearance: to
predict whether or not the little girl in the story will see a real live owl...
And for the most part, they thought she would and they were right. There are some great lines in this book, if you've never checked it out, it's worth the effort. I read it very, very quietly cause when you go owling, it has to be quiet. By the time the owl shows up, it is mesmerizingly quiet in my classroom. I quite like it, all the quiet, cause it doesn't happen often.
And next week, we'll get down to it, learning some new owl facts and doing some owl art. Owl keep you posted. OK, I'll STOP! In the meantime, if you can use this Owl labelling, owl you have to do is click. This time I'm really stopping.
See y'owl later.
