Bats; Reading Comprehension and Writing Resources for Middle School Students is a perfect package of activities for a Halloween mini unit for your Middle School Students. Resources fit seamlessly into your existing curriculum, and include several activities relating to reading comprehension, including informational text, a summary activity, poetry analysis, and creative writing. All resources are classroom tested and include detailed instructions and creative handouts. Very little teacher prep in needed – simply print and teach!

This package makes for an excellent emergency TOC or substitute plan to have on hand, as all resources are included in this ready to use package.

All resources included in this package can easily be aligned to the common core standards.

This creative and engaging package includes the following:

”Bats: Fact or Fiction” Informational Text and Summary Activity: Students read the full page of informational text about bats, and then complete a summarizing activity relating to it.

”Bats” by Randall Jarrell –Poem and Analysis Activity: Students read the included poem, and complete a creative handout relating to poem analysis.

Creative Writing Activity: A graphic organizer, brainstorming sheet, and good copy page are included for this fun creative writing activity, where students use the information they have learned throughout the mini unit to complete a diary entry from a bat’s perspective.
