This is a compilation of Bat related poems and songs. The poems include lesson ideas that encourage Language Arts or art connections. The poems or songs help to increase vocabulary, improve fluency, teach about poetry and support overall reading acquisition. I use poems or songs as an opportunity to utilize Multiple Intelligence Theory by incorporating movement and art alongside language and music. Poems can be printed and illustrated by students. They can be put into personalized poetry books based on this theme. Poems are great to use with struggling readers because they are shortened for easier mastery and students can gain reading confidence as they perform them for their peers or parents. These poems make a great addition alongside other materials about bats and students can be encouraged to make text-to-self or text-to-text connections.
