This is a super HUGE set of materials to use along with the book Stellaluna-and a Bat Theme !
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!
