Class Experience

Students will learn the parts of the book.
Students will practice identifying rhyming words, i.e. bat, that, cat, fat.
Students will practice following directions to create a bat.
black construction paper
white paper (can be from scraps - approximately 1 square inch is all that is needed to make the teeth)
pencil or white crayon
googly eyes (or construction paper precut to look like eyes)

25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance advised for use of scissors.
