Torn Paper Owlets - We began by drawing the owl step-by-step and ripping brown paper to create the owl's feathers. Ripping the paper was a great way to work on fine motor skill development. The students practiced cutting by tracing two cups for the yellow eyes and cutting them out. They added details such as legs, eyes, and a beak to complete the baby owl.

We also amused ourselves with the names in the groups - see who you can find! Check out our website for a video that explains it in more detail: http://www.aceearlyyears.com/planning.html
