PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a week long book and bat study!

There are 4 adorable and motivating reading response graphic organizers as well as a kid and teacher friendly scoring rubric.

There is also a math tub included called Stellaluna's Stars which works on addition. There are three levels of difficulty of the game. Addition to 5, 10, and 20.

You will also get a circle map class chart with recording sheet for students as well as the story elements chart titles, graphics, and a cute bat paper bag puppet of story elements for students to create.

There are three science center activities included that can be done both at a center or whole group.

To culminate the week, there are templates for a bat facts writing page with an art project.

Check out the preview!

I have taught this for 5 years and it is a favorite of my students year after year. It goes perfectly with a study of bats. Your class will fall in love with Stellaluna by Janel Cannon!

I noticed on the headers for your story map chart there are two for "problem" and none for setting. Any chance this can be fixed?

When I downloaded the Stellaluna Book Study there were two pages, the Character Analysis and the Setting page. It wasn't anything on those sheets but lines. I would appreciate it if I could get these from you please. I have a brand new computer with adobe reader and I don't think it's my computer. Everything else that I printed out was fantastic.Could you please tell me how to get those pages? Thanks! Anita

On  October 20, 2012Reagan Tunstall answered:
I responded to your feedback and I am not sure how to fix technical problems but the purchases page has some instructions at the top for these common problems as well as the contact button at the bottom of the page. They will help you figure out what is happening.
Thanks so much. Let me know if they can not resolve your issue.

When I downloaded the Stellaluna Book Study, there were several pages that the writing looked "smeared" and was unreadable. It wasn't on all of them, so I don't know if it is the program that was used to open it with or something else.

Hi Lisa,
It sounds like you need to update your adobe reader. If that first work, there are instructions on the purchase page or you can try the contact button at the bottom of the page. It should be any easy fix! Thank you!

This is what another buyer wrote after fixing the same problem.

After reading the instructions for downloading the mini lessons, I realized that the pdf wasn't opening in Adobe Reader on my MAC, the file was opening in preview. I had to download Adobe Reader and, "abracadabra," there it was! Great lessons! Thanks!

On  October 3, 2012,  Buyer asked:
My question is the same as linzms fuzzy black lines instead
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 3, 2012Reagan Tunstall answered:
Usually fuzzy black lines means you are viewing the document in the incorrect format or you need to update your adobe reader. The file is fine but it is something you need to update on order to view it properly. The contact button at the bottom of the page can help walk you through it. They are quick and helpful.

I am so sorry you are having trouble. Some people with macs said it was not previewing correctly but when they printed it came out right. I will email you another copy to try and if you can't get it to work I will refund you. I haven't ever had to do that. Is there another computer you could use? I want you to have it. My email is reagan.tunstall@gmail.com. I am happy to send you another copy! :)
