We had so much fun that I think next year I am going to try to raise enough money for a pumpkin patch field trip for my whole class! Our school's budget is $0 for things like paper and copy machine toner, so there's no chance of getting a field trip this year :(
However, we do manage to have lots of fun at school! One of the things we are going to be doing is our Bat unit! I actually have an affinity for bats now after doing several years worth of units about them. Here are some pictures from last year's Bat unit:
I divided my kiddos into 6 groups to cut out and glue 100 mosquitoes on a plate. This great number sense activity is from Fun in First Grade!
We made scrapbook paper bats...
We read a lot of bat books too, here are some of my favorites:
We are also going to do a Fall Senses Walk and journal about the sights, sounds and smells of Fall. Of course we'll be picking up Fall leaves as well and since we'll have leaves handy, I thought "Why not make the Fall leaf craft from The Artful Parent's Autumn ebook?" So I spent my Staples ink cartridge recycling money on silver and gold Sharpies today!
