Going Batty!

It's the 3rd Week of October and I feel we still have so much to cover on our school schedule. I know it's just going to happen since I am away 3 days next week. 

Today we started our Bat unit, had some playtime at a Farm Market and art was using or cookie cutter stampers!  I needed to get corn stalks and large pumpkins for our HUGE Halloween Bash this weekend....

Farm Market morning

PreK and K


Did you know that bats are put into two categories:

and Megabats

They can also fly up to 60 MPH!

Bat daubers fun

Scholastic work - bat questions

More dauber fun - found these cute print outs 


Great book about this Bat who wanted to play soccer with these other teams. 
Team "A" the animals
Team "B" the birds.
You see he thought that the "A" team would win because they looked stronger
However the "B" team could fly...
Great outcome..great book..encourage you to go seek it out at your library!
