Batastic Week! All About Bats!

What a great week we had studying bats!
Our shared reading poem was 5 Little Bats.   This is a poem that I co-wrote with my teaching buddy.  You can copy it off or find it in our October Shared Reading and Poetry Station Packet.
 We followed Deanna Jump's bat unit.  We made the adorable bats from the unit, but did I get a picture of them... NOOOO... Seriously, sometimes I scare myself!
 I think my bat drawing improved over the week.
 Here is one student's report.   L-O-V-E!

I ended up pulling this out of my Nocturnal Math Work Stations.  We used the +1 dice, so I added bat erasers for support.  You can see one at the bottom of this page...he is trying to get away!
 The very sweet Tanya Solano sent me these darling little detective hats. I TOTALLY knew I wanted to use them, but I was not sure how.  Then I saw these fun I Spy activities from Marsha McGuire and I pounced on them!   I modified the card a little because I had printer issues...ERRR!
I was too cheap to print them again!  LOL

 AND...we pretty much went crazy for Vowel Bat by Shari Sloane.

This super-cute book is from Kim Adsit.

 I will leave you with this video we watched that will sort of haunt you because you will sing it while you are at the grocery store.    

So sorry!  I will be back tomorrow with my Peek at my Week!  I! Promise!


  1. LOVE the hats :) I love the many bat ideas you did this week! Looks like your kids had a lot of fun. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Deedee!

  8. I've been a little behind on my reader and finally caught up with this post. Love everything you do, of course. You are amazing. But was a little star struck when I saw one of my I-Spy activities! What? Deedee is using MY I-Spy. It was the high-light of my day. Thanks Deedee. You're the best.
