Last week was a busy, busy week. Report cards were due and parent conferences, but they are now done and I fell a huge weight off of my shoulders.
We began our bat unit last week. Our inquiry question was, are bats helpful? We took a poll and most thought they were helpful, so now we will do a little research and decide if that is true.
We went on a field trip to one of our local museums this past week. They have an exhibit on bats, which was wonderful. We even got to experience hearing like a bat.
I finally introduced Reader’s Theatre’s plays this week. I use partner plays from A Teeny Tiny Teacher. My kids love them. The weather has been great, so I let them practice them outside and then they come in a ‘perform’ in between mini-lessons.
Truth be told, I have been trying to think of an exciting #5 thing to share and I just can’t think of one, so we will leave it at that.
