An Owl Sat Alone on the Branch of a Tree
from King County Library
An owl sat alone on the branch of a tree, Use arm as branch; holding owl puppet
And she was as quiet as quiet could be.
‘Twas night and her eyes were wide open like this; Circle eyes with fingers and look around
She looked all around, not a thing did she miss.
Some little birds perched on the branch of the tree, Fingers of other hand fly on tree
And sat there as quiet as quiet could be.
The solemn old owl said “whoo-whoo-whoo,”
And up jumped the birds and away they flew. Wave hand away, fluttering fingers behind back

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”

Puppets

Folkmanis Screech Owl-I use this puppet with the fingerplay “An Owl Sat Alone on the Branch of a Tree”

Music

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 hokey pokey and you fly yourself around
That’s what it’s all about! Hoot, hoot!

Verses: Left wing…Right claw…Left claw…Beak…Whole, feathered self
