King Kindergarteners go batty for bats

King Kindergarteners learn about bats

Leslie Bladen describes her kindergarten class’ weeklong adventure in learning about bats: 

“We learned about fictional stories and non-fiction stories. We then read 5 different bat books and discussed whether they were fictional or non-fiction, and how we knew. We took our learning a step further: in the fiction stories, we talked about the setting, characters, the problem, and the solution. In the non-fiction stories, we learned what a “fact” was and created a list of facts about bats. The students then wrote their own facts about bats in a very silly “Bat Facts” book they created that looked like a bat! We culminated our week-long study with a “Fall Festival” on Friday with our families. We watched one of the stories we read, “Stellaluna” using our classroom projector, created some VERY silly bat hats (by following directions – positional words were used in our directions – we’ve been learning about positional words in math), and had some very yummy snacks with our classroom families. It was a great week!”
