Bat Writing and Craft--for Bat Unit or Halloween Fun!

Studying bats? Or just want a Halloween project? This resource may just fit the bill. It's a craft and writing packet just right for kids in grades 1-3. There are a variety of ways you can use the pages and activities in this packet. Choose any or all of the activities to suit your students' grade or skill level.(Since we have diverse classrooms and not everyone celebrates Halloween, this packet can work for all students.) But we know that bats are popular in ANY season.

As an added feature, a little bat book is also included with this download. The Big Brown Bat has instructions and an easy-to-follow pattern. The final art project made of construction paper, is a large bat that can hang upside down or right-side up. Upside down, it can hold a collection of bat facts. This makes a cool bat pocket! 

Check it out, and read a more detailed description. Go to my store where you'll find it at this link: 
Suggested Grade levels: 1-3

Happy Bat Writing and Crafting!

Turkey Visitors

Our feathered friends stopped by the other morning. Little do they realize Thanksgiving is less than a month and a half away! (I learned that a group of turkeys is called a rafter. But I think I prefer the term flock.) I wish this was a better picture, but my iPod can do only so much!
