Bat Loves the Night Read Aloud Lesson Ideas
Nicola Davies is one of my favorite authors. I love how she couples informational text with a narrative text.
Not only is a great book for our Engaging Readers, but it is also a wonderful mentor text for writing. Her descriptive writing allows us to raise the word choice in our own writers.

Using the text students worked on building their schema!
Students also worked on making connections. Students were asked to draw a picture of other animals that are nocturnal.
All of these activities are part of our Engaging Readers units.

October Morning work
My students used to arrive in my classroom up to 30 minutes before the bell rang. This was a great opportunity to get my assessments done with ESGI. Those students who were not being assessed worked on a morning activity before moving on to their early finisher bins. These are a few of the pages that students work on in October. You can find these pages by clicking HERE.

Bat Loves the Night Craft
This directed drawing and watercolor turned out really cute.
The directions for this student art are included in our Engaging Readers units.
