That's a wrap on bats!

We finished up our bat unit today! I am so excited... the kiddos did amazing.

I can't wait to read all of their reports (notice READ not grade.. not looking forward to that part!) I was so proud of how some of my striving learners worked hard to research but didn't give up and found the information they needed.

Here's a peak at our week in pictures for you to see what we were up to "Going Batty!"

{It snowed in Ohio... In October. Yeah, I'll just let that sink in.}

{Collecting more research  and facts.}

{Using our graphic organizers to write our rough drafts!}

{Loving our "bat poop" and bat poop poem while watching Magic School Bus Going Batty!}

{Silly bat craft fun!}

{The final products!}

We had a BLAST! My kiddos have been spitting out bat facts like crazy all week, and they were SO excited to read their reports out loud for "Featured Friday" and to their buddies. 

What's on the agenda next week? A study on Monsters! We will be using I Need My Monster for our Mentor Text and a bunch of books on Frankenstein! 

I can't wait to do my newest product, our biography of Frankenstein and the cute crafitivty to go with it!

Check back next week to hear all about what we do with monsters!!! 

To celebrate my new product... let's do a PIN IT TO WIN IT! Pin any of the 3 above photos, and leave a comment with a link to your pin! I will pick a random winner tomorrow night to receive the product for FREE!! :) Pin away, my friends!!

Check back tomorrow... something AMAZING is coming this way that you DO NOT want to miss!!
