Owl Moon with FIAR

I’m so excited to be back in the swing of Five in a Row with my littlest man! My oldest two made so many good memories during learning time using this curriculum.  I likely won’t post about all our studies, but I took the time to take some pictures of the “extras” during our latest “row” of Owl Moon.

From the Five in a Row Blog Roll and Link-Up, I found several fun add-ons.   Most of them came from Delightful Learning and School Time Snippets.

Owl Moon Activities

1. A quickly drawn grid, some directional note cards and a little foam owl made for a fun game to learn N, S, E & W.  After several instructions like, “Move south two blocks”, or “Go three blocks east”, my little guy had these basic directions down pat.

2. A simple owl made from dollar store foam sheets became a good lesson in shapes and following oral directions.

3.  A quick print-off of the rhyme, “Wee Willy Winkie”, made for a scavenger hunt of the ‘ow’ sound.

4. After reading some go-along informational books about owls, we put together a little chart of what Eli knew about owls.  He came up with the information, I wrote the words on another piece of paper and he copied them.  (How’s that for fairly painless copywork?)

5. After reading some go-along books about nocturnal animals, we did a mini-research project to design a nocturnal animals poster.  I’ll write a separate post soon about how awesome this research project was!

6. After reading some go-along books about the moon, we made craters in a powdered sugar “moon” with some cookies before they baked.

Fun, fun, fun!  So much learning!  So many happy memories!
