Bats! (day 2)
Here are the pictures I promised from yesterday:
And here is what we did today (during our 1/2 day!):
We read this story called Two Little Witches:
I found this story many years ago at Wal-Mart during Halloween time and purchased it–little did I know that it was a wonderful math related story. Here are some shots of my students acting it out today!
We also read these stories:
This one is a take off of There Was An Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly (or a Pie, or a bell, shell, star, Cello, some snow, etc.) Does anyone know of anymore versions of this story–I kind of collect them! I will show you a fabulous activity we will do with the “Pie” version of this story in November–closer to Thanksgiving! 🙂 It’s super cute!
We also watched the Magic School Bus movie about Bats (I think the correct title is The Magic School Bus Goes Batty!). I usually don’t like to show many movies, but I am a big sucker for MSB movies because they are SOOO full of information presented in a kid-friendly way! We will watch one more on Friday, about Spiders because I wanted to hit that again–the kids loved it so much!
No kids tomorrow or Thursday, so my next post will be Friday–if I survive Halloween! 🙂
November brings the Little Red Hen, Election (you can find the ballot for the elections on the PDF page under “I” for ice cream), Pilgrims/Native Americans, Thanksgiving, and The Old Woman Who Swallowed A Pie. I’ll be working on those plans on Thursday.
