This was the first week we did a unit study based around a book involving fun activities! It went over really well. I found a website that based on your child's age or grade level gives you a list of books to read and then a PDF full of learning activities to go along with it. I like that the activities incorporate many subjects, like math, science, art, vocabulary, etc.

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
It's a story about 3 baby owls that wake up in the middle of the night to find their mommy is gone. After waking, they go through a series of emotions before mommy returns home.
Kiley loved the book and we read it lots of times throughout the week.
I gave Kiley a slice of bread, pieces of cheese, turkey, grapes and let her go to town on it. I spread some Vegenaise on the bread to help the food stick. Kiley said she liked it and ate it right up.
Make An Owl Puppet
With some felt, feathers from the craft store, googly eyes and glue, Kiley made a pretty cute owl. She named him Fuzzy Pants.
