Owls make a great theme for the fall months. Thom Borden posted this rhyme on his blog. The owls came from clips art that I had found. As always, the toddlers at my storytime love to help put the owls up on the board. They wind up right side up, upside down and any other direction you can think of. Their random placements always look better to my eyes than what I would have done.
One wise owl sitting in a tree,
Hooted to another, “Come sit with me.”
Two wise owls sitting in a tree,
Hooted to one more, “Come let’s be three!”
Three wise owls sitting in a tree,
Hooted to a fourth, “Come quietly.”
Four wise owls sitting in a tree,
Hooted to a fifth, “Join our family.”
Five wise owls sang “Whooo, whooo, whooo!”
And before you knew it, away they all flew!
