Bats and Spiders… and MORE… OH MY!

Hi Friends.. I hope this post finds you well.  With October approaching quite quickly, I wanted to let you know what I have my students do during our Daily 5 rotations in my Work on Writing station.
Introducing….. BATS!!!!

So… I LOVE having the students do different types of research projects in class during the month of October.  This month lends itself well with so many opportunities for having some fun learning and researching about creepy crawlies and things that fly in the night with Halloween coming up.
So in order to fit EVERYTHING in… I like to add research projects to my work on writing station.
During the month of October, my students will complete 3 – 4 different research projects at my Work on Writing Station.  My students always have a MUST DO and a CAN DO activity when they get to our Work on Writing Station.   This month they will focus on BATS, using EITHER.. my 
All About Bats  Bat-Shaped Interactive Notebook OR they can complete my Bats Flip Flap Book™

I add a variety of different non-fiction books, texts, and passages at the Work on Writing Station for them to read and complete their research.  Giving them a choice on which activity to complete is exciting for them!

The next project they will work on during their rotation to Work on Writing is Spider research using my Spiders Flip Flap Book™

I also leave one of my ipads at the Work on Writing Center set up so they can watch this video as well.
The other 2 or 3 research projects that my students complete during the month of October is my 
Christopher Columbus Boat-Shaped Interactive Notebook activity, my Fire Safety Shaped-Writing Template, and my Halloween Writing Fun Interactive Notebook activity during the week of Halloween.  My Haunted House Halloween Shaped Booklet is what I use to differentiate my  Work on Writing station. A few of my students will not be able to handle 3-4 different projects in the month, so in order to differentiate, I will give those students my Haunted House Halloween Shaped Booklet.  This booklet has a page for spider research, bat research, writing an expository paragraph, a making words activity, and a few other activities.  So this booklet is a PERFECT way to differentiate my Work on Writing Station for my kiddos 🙂
