So right now we are learning all about Bats, Birds, and Owls. We are comparing Bats to Birds and then more specifically Bats to Owls and we are doing a lot of great thinking. I wanted to share some of our Thinking Maps that we are working on and also some of our fun crafts.
First, we read Stellaluna and then did a Bats/Birds Double Bubble map.
The next day I read Stellaluna again and we made a story map altogether.
For a fun activity we traced bats and wrote elements of the story on the bats in white crayon.
On Monday we will read some Bat fact books and made a tree map.
Here is an owl tree map we will complete before we do our Bats and Owls Double Bubble to wrap up the week.
Bats/Owls Double Bubble
We will finish up by doing a super cute owl craft that I don’t yet have a picture of! :)
This is my absolute favorite time of year- I love the theme of owls and bats and Halloween books!
What is your favorite “theme” to teach each year?
