5 year olds.
The children are inquiring into relationships in their class.
This classic poem oozes a positive relationship.
I told the story of the Owl and the Pussycat. I didn't read the poem at first. As I was telling the tale, two little girls helped me out by adding the appropriate line in the poem. They had obviously heard it several times.
It was lovely.
I then let them listen to the poem, which I feel they got more out of because they had been introduced to what was going to happen.

The children made a piece of art in four stages. The background was crayon and dye.
The owl was marker and coloured pencil.
The boat was green paper collage.
The pussycat was marker pen and glitter.
When all the pieces were dry, the children assembled the scene. I was impressed at how easily they put it all together. Some of the pussycats are in front of the owl so they would fit in the boat. Smart stuff.
