Name bats

Halloween was quickly approaching and I wanted to make the classroom feel festive. We needed something new to hang from the ceiling. At the time we were really working on the -at word family in reading groups.  So when thinking about something that reflected the season I thought it was appropriate to make bats. Our lower groups were still having trouble with their names so I decided that we could have the kids write their names on the bats. I wrote each students’ name on the bat with a white crayon. Then I had the students use a q-tip and puffy paint (shaving cream and glue) to trace the name on the bat. They turned out cute but the puffy paint was a little tricky for some of the kids with greater fine motor deficits. For them I might just use a white paint pen next time.
