There are few things in life that creep me out: mice, snakes, spiders and bats. I must be batty because this week I am teaching my students about bats.

There are some wonderful ideas in the unit for science, math and literacy. The link about will take you to her blog, A Day in First Grade. Kristen's blog is amazing and so are her products.
I plan on reading the following books:
and my poem of the week is Spooky Bats.
Let me know if you have some other favorite books about bats.
