    Two of my favorites for fall and a ton of fun with BATS!

    These materials are differentiated, so you can provide materials for children at different learning levels. Not every page will be perfect for every ability, that's the beauty of differentiated materials!

    Stellaluna Book Companion

    I love the book Stellaluna and put together these materials for kindergarten specifically.

    You will find that many of the activities offered will work for different ability levels. I always have found that kindergarteners come in at different levels, and this product was designed to work for a range of abilities! A lot of the materials would work for pre-k, some for first graders and speech and language as well. Look at the preview, as it contains everything in the unit! You will have more than enough materials for a full week of whole group and center activities! Or prepare everything and use it for a SUB TUB!

    EASY TO READ FONT on all of the materials!!
