This week we are setting our heebie jeebies aside and teaching our class all about bats! Our first graders are batty for bats, so we will have a great time learning all about these flying mammals. We even have a class visit scheduled with a real bat and their owner! Creepy cool, huh?
(We are kind of freaking out...EEEK).
Here's What's Included
Bat Label Me
“Bats, Bats, Bats!” Build a Poem
“Bats, Bats, Bats!” Little Book
“Bats, Bats, Bats!” Fluency Building Bookmarks for Little Book
Counting by 5s
We wrote a poem called, "Bats, Bats, Bats!" which we will recite and rebuild in our class pocket chart all week long.
During independent work time, they will use our poem fill in to spell the missing words from the poem and illustrate. They will also see this poem in our Bats, Bats, Bats! Little Book which will test their reading comprehension skills as they have to illustrate the pages to match the text.
Christy made this cute bat craft to help our kids who still need help cutting and following directions. Plus, it's fun...But, we are told we aren't allowed to use the "f" word in our lesson plans...So it's a fine motor/following directions skill builder activity...
AKA Bat Craft to you fun teachers. ;)

Plus, we created a free bonus Batty for Bats opinion writing activity for you. You can download it for free from our Bat Bits ~ Across the Curriculum Activities product preview in our TpT Shop.We will add this to our Sharing Pages plans for this week, thanks to a great idea from one of our readers!
