Going Batty and a Freebie!

So I planned on posting about this last Monday, but we all know life happens and I haven't been able to get to my blog all week! My class has been going absolutely batty over this unit!

It is so wonderful, and my friends love it. We have been working so hard, and I believe Jen does the Treasures series just like my school, so the grammer matches up perfectly. I have some pictures to show of my students working so hard and learning about bats! 

One of my favorite activities was the scavenger hunts, and being the bad teacher I am I only took one picture of my friend doing it. This was when we were searching for antonyms.

Another activity my friends loved was creating a venn diagram comparing bats and birds. It was our first time doing venn diagrams this year, but they picked up very quickly. After we made our class diagram, they cut and pasted their own diagram.

I really wish I would have gotten pictures of their sequencing books, but I of course forgot! If you are looking for a unit to finish up October. I HIGHLY recommended doing this unit, it was so amazing!

After seeing how much my students love scavenger hunts around the classroom, I made this one for them to work on their 2- digit regrouping. My students are really not getting regrouping, so hopefully more practice like this will help. I hope you can use it in your classroom too!

You can click on the pictures to take you to the download! :) Or you can just go to my TPT store. :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday. I have friend who has started bringing me an envelope with a little piece of candy each day. It is soo sweet and brightens everyday!
