Bats Day #1 and Day #2 2009
Posted by Kristen Poindexter
This week, we’ve been learning all about BATS!! We have several students in our school who do not celebrate the fall holidays, so I always try to keep things neutral and not offend anyone. In October, we learn about bats, spiders, pumpkins, and leaves, all kind of tying into the holidays, yet we do not discuss ways in which they might relate–these are just things you might see in our area in October! Some pictures which are probably self-explanatory!
This is our Big Book this week! I also created a PDF file to help re-tell this story. There are 5 bats and an equal and minus signs to help the children understand the math.
These are some other Big Books we will be reading this week.
This is the “-at” cave (not the bat cave mind you!). We made a list of -at family words in our morning message on Monday and then made bats today and they seemed to belong together–so the “-at” cave was born!
I’m in the process of finishing it, so I will take new pictures once it’s done.
