I am so excited to share our little Bat (-at Family) Word Slide with you!
Are you as smitten as I am?
A Halloween craft that doubles as a learning aide is my idea of fabulous!
What You Need:
white strip of cardstock
What To Do:
1. Paint the TP Roll black & allow to dry
2. Trace handprints onto black construction paper -
this will be the bat's wings.
3. Cut out handprints
4. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics when I was making the word slide but it really is simple. I folded the TP roll and cut slits into both sides to match my strip of card stock. I then folded it the opposite way and cut out a small square. Be sure to cut off center so that you leave room for the letters 'at'.
5. Write your target letters/blends on the card stock - we used b, c, f, m, r, s and p.
6. Play with your cute Batty Word Slide and let him help you practice reading those _at family words!
Game: Catch the -at Word
I found this bat inflatable at WalMart & knew it would be perfect for our -at word fun.
How To Play:
Prep: I wrote some _at words on paper and taped them to various spots on the bat.
(front of bat)
(back of bat)
To play, I simply threw the bat up in the air and the Lil Divas had to catch it.
Once caught, they had to read the words where their hands grasped the bat.
I am having fun coming up with creative word slides that fit our themes.
Do you have any ideas to share?
I'll give you a sneak peek into one of mine -
I have a pumpkin coming up to review _in words!
We've also been learning quite a bit about bats in general from these fab Books for young learners:
