First graders at Wood Elementary enjoyed a room transformation, as their regular classrooms became a bat cave for a day. First graders arrived one day to school to see their ordinary classrooms transformed into a bat cave. They explored the caves to discover digraphs. They learned many facts about bats and wrote an informative paragraph about what they learned. They learned new vocabulary words and played a bat-themed game to review syllables. They went “batty” practicing their addition and subtraction strategies to solve up to 20. They distinguished between facts and opinions, and so much more. So many important first grade skills were covered during this day. The students enjoyed getting to learn all about bats in a unique and memorable way.
