|Stellaluna Bat Handprint Art and Bat Acrostic Poetry|
There is only a week till Halloween so these books were fun to add to our Scarcity line-up. And we read all as a reader's theater. Every day was a new one. Kids love and get into reading with expression and since I have one table of kids read a part they try to outdo each other's tables groups. It's funny.

Many of the kids told how they pass down clothes to friends or cousins. We talked about times we had to do without when mom or dad were out of money or times we had to choose when we only had a certain amount of money and wanted more than we could buy. Or times when we felt lonely when friends were scarce (like Stellaluna).

Then we brainstormed facts we heard and wrote them down on sloppy copy paper. Then we came up with beginning words for sentences starting with B, A, T, and S. They were quicker than I thought! HERE at First Grade Parade are some really cute ABC Order bat activities as a free download. Thanks
