Bat Cave Day!

Our first-grade classrooms will be learning all about bats.  We will be reading both nonfiction and fiction texts to explore the misconceptions and interesting facts about these spooky creatures! On Friday, November 2nd our classrooms will be transformed into a bat cave for the day.  The room will be dark and decorated in such a way that our first graders will feel like a bat themselves.  We are asking that all students bring in a flashlight or headlamp for the day.  This will make our ability to work easier!

Thank you for your support.  We look forward to an exciting and fun-filled week of learning!
