This week we have been focussing on nocturnal animals, specifically bats. We read the silly story "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat!" The first day we read the story in a big book format. After reading the story, we put speech bubbles next to the characters to add detail to the pages and use our imagination to what they are thinking or saying on the particular page. Today, we read a smaller version of the book and cut out our own characters. We glued the main character, the old lady, on the front of a baggie. We then cut each of the other characters out and put them inside the baggie. We read through the story a second time today and placed the characters in the old lady in order with the story. The class had a fun time with this and are excited to retell the story at home using their character bags.
