We read "Little Owl Lost", which is a fun book by Chris Haughton - and I love his illustration style. Not only did we learn about how to draw an owl, we also talked about texture and practiced our ripping and glueing skills. We also learned about how our pupils change size when we're in different lighting conditions. Notice the owl with the large pupils -- so it can see at nighttime! 

I decided to use plain-colored paper for the backgrounds in the 1st grade class this week, and I really like that decision.

What a great way to incorporate reading into art class. Thank you for being a great educator to our children.
