Bats, bats and more bats!

What a fun week of bats galore last week... These little nocturnal animals are one of the favorites in my classroom. We had so much fun getting to know more abut these little guys. Here are some of the things that we did! We started our bat study with a KWL...
After reading a few nonfiction bat books these are some of the words that we brainstormed to create a fictional story about a bat.

Our fictional study for the week was "Stelluna" and our little firsties made these adorable bats retelling what what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the text. Of course my favorite part was hanging them from the ceiling for the little ones to see when they walked in the next morning. They were amazed!

Here is another bat that we made to show off our mad ability to find facts! OH MY Word aren't they cute??

I have to be honest, many of these ideas were taken from various blogs and websites so THANK YOU to First Grade Parade for all of your inspiration and ideas! If you haven't seen her stuff go on over and check it out! She is AMAZING!!
