I put some masking tape on some of the felt owls/ or you can use clip art ones- if you want to give them to the kids and use the black felt board with them you can count them , talk about colors, and you can sing a little song with them too.
(Tune of the ten little Indians)
1 little, 2 little , 3 little owls
4 little, 5 little , 6 little owls
7 little, 8 little, 9 little owls
10 little owls say whoo whoo whoo!

Action Song: “Owl Hokey Pokey”
You put your right wing in
You put your right wing out
You put your right wing in
And you flap it all about
You do the owl pokey and you fly yourself around
That’s what it’s all about! Hoo, hoo!
(left wing, right claw, left claw, beak, whole self)

Song: “Owl In the Tree”
Owl in the tree says, “who, who, who?”
Owl in the tree says, “who, who, who?”
Owl in the tree says, “who, who, who?”
Who, who, who are you?

Fingerplay: “Wide-Eyed Owl”
There’s a wide-eyed owl (circle your eyes with your hands)
With a pointed nose (make a beak with your fingers)
Two pointed ears (make ears with your fingers)
And claws for toes (wiggle your “claws”)
He lives way up in the tree (point way up)
And when he looks at you (point to children)
He flaps his wings (flap your wings)
And says, “Whoo! Whoo!” (say “whoo whoo”)

Flannelboard: “Five Hoot Owls”
Five hoot owls sitting in a tree
One flew away! How many do you see?
One, two, three, four. (count down)

Parachute activity:
use the parachute & soft balls (blue bags in the program closet on top of big books)* lift up parachute, kids go under the parachute, walk in a circle holding handles, Make fast waves –shake fast , make slow waves – shake slowly --lay down under the parachute to see if it touches belly or Place soft balls on the parachute to shake them up like popcorn. 

If your happy and you know it (intro song)
Clap you hands, stomp your feet, shout hooray!

Use the owl mask cutouts and tape two sticks (one on each end of the backside for stability) then they can use the glue sticks and glue a couple of feathers on each end and in the middle.
