Planning for Bat Week

Next week, Bat week is on the menu!! 

I have a lot of posts from the past on our Bat weeks - There was some tons of fun to be had! Click {HERE} to check out 1st Grade's bat activities. You can check out what I did when I taught 2nd grade {HERE} and {HERE}.

But I'll give you some of my must dos in this post...

But FIRST... here are some of my favorite books to read during the week. Click on the pictures to find them on Amazon.

After we read one of the NF books, we started in on the  Bats Tree Map. The numbers and checkmarks are from when we used this as our planning sheet for our Facts About Bats Writing. We glued it into our reader's notebook and kept adding to our tree map throughout the week.

We also learned how to draw a bat. I found this OH SO CUTE directed drawing from Bren in Room 10. When I made the print up for it, I made sure to put where I got it... because I knew I'd forget - ha!

One of the best things I like about directed drawings is that I get to learn how to draw too - haahaa!  I had my kids add a few more details so we could label the actual parts of the bat.

Then I had them draw the habitat that they would be living in....some got so creative!  Here's a cave.

And then the treebranch...I just love the artistic abilities that these kids have!

Our end of the week writing project was to use our tree map to write at least 3 things about facts. Some wrote even more!  We glued the writing on top of our bat labeling picture.

And sometimes our copier jams and we just write it on regular writing paper. No harm in that! 

These writing and crafts below might be some of my favorite to hang up! I love the dusk paintings!

The writing page comes from my Label It and Write About it pack. You can find all of my October writing packs HERE

We also love listening to Stellaluna being read on Storyline Online. 

After we read Stellaluna, we did our SWBSF (found in my Bat pack) that they wrote in their reader's notebook. 

Then they wrote it out in paragraph form. They had to highlight the "cue" words to make sure they were writing the events in order and to make sure they included all their details. I will say that ALREADY my kids are getting how to turn their notes into writing!  I have a few that are still struggling, but that's ok - they're getting better! The OH SO CUTE bat is a FREEBIE craft that comes from one of my favorite ladies, A Cupcake for the Teacher.

Then, we watched the YouTube video, Echolocation Song...maybe like a hundred times - they love it!  So I turned it into a song for their poetry journal and they illustrated what echolocation means. Click on the picture below to download the poem.

The funniest part?? I typed up the poem in a rush one morning and didn't even have time to proofread it... and we found a few mistakes - woops!! Oh well. A good editing lesson, right? haa!

We always put our poems in our poetry journals - You can find my FREE poetry journal covers HERE

See some of the activities in this post in my Bats Unit!

The need for more legitimate hacking companies are rising each passing day because of the magnitude of scams being run on the Internet. I know what I went through before I was able to contact Osecybersailing to work on my case after getting scammed multiple times and trying to retrieve back my lost investment funds. After I have invested $670k usd with a fraudulent crypto investment company and i lost everything in the space of one month and got scammed again and again trying to find a solution which wasn't easy to come by given the circumstances that brought about the incident, getting scammed multiple times is never a good experience for anyone involved which was what exactly happened to me when I got scammed investing into crypto currency. Many posing on the Internet as hacking companies aren't really what they are because most of them are scammers waiting for a prey to devour, I got referred to reach out to Osecybersailing through a friend and after I investigated about their legitimacy I came across many of their testimony from their satisfied clients that got their lost investment funds retrieved working with this legitimate and evergreen hacking institute which also changed my story helping me retrieve back my lost investment funds. Many of the testimony really were saying great and worthy things about how the company saved them from financial loss, I decided to hire them after many consideration and they didn't disappoint me by making the choice of choosing them after what I have experienced lately trying to get my funds back from the scammers. They proved they can be trusted with the recovery of lost investment funds which is why I wrote this down for other victims of scam who wishes to ever retrieve back their lost investment funds to let Osecybersailing solve their case, they're worthy and has what it takes to restore back your funds and peace of mind. If you also wish to check your partner Whatsapp conversation to know if he/she is cheating then Osecybersailing is the best team for you.
If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook and Whatsapp hacking to catch your cheating partner, let Osecybersailing's team guide you towards the light of redemption.

A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook Account and Whatsapp hacking to check if your partner is cheating, then let Osecybersailing and it's team guide you towards the light of redemption.
