Everyone is going batty at this time of year so why not join in the fun! I have put together a literacy unit packed with content!

I have included:
*8 important vocabulary cards (with real photos)
*a 7 page nonfiction book (with real photos)) and a corresponding student booklet for your students to record information
*4 bat poems {Bats Are Neat, Bats, Five Batty Bats, Little Bat} with a coloured version and a black and white version ~ all the poems have follow-up activities to extend their learning ~ tons of graphics to support all levels of readers
*student booklet for your children to make that corresponds with the book Hello, Bumblebee Bat by Darrin Lunde
*information pages for 4 types of bats (Bumblebee, Vampire, Fruit, and Free Tailed)
*all the pages you need to make a cute Stellaluna lapbook that covers; comparing bats and birds, author's message, problem and solution, and facts from the book {photos included so you can clearly see how I put it together}
*coloured pages with the answers so you can make a lapbook example for your students to see or you can show it on the Smartboard
*Someone, Wanted, So, But, Finally ~ Stellaluna writing activity

This is a super easy unit to implement! All you need to do is photocopy and gather bat books ~ presto you have a unit ready to go - love!

Please have a look at the preview so that you can see everything that I have packed into this unit!

Photographs: I purchased all the photographs from Dollar Photo Club and they are for commercial use.

This unit is now available in a bundle here:
