We had a local bat expert (Corrina’s mom) from Bat Conservation International came to our class to talk all things bats. We saw fascinating photos and interesting stories about her bat experiences. 

She also provided all the ingredients to make fruit smoothies using fruits that bats eat!

Today we made smoothies from fruits that bats eat, foods that bats protect, and seeds that bats spread. The smoothie turned out great! Afterwards we sliced up the leftover papaya with some fresh squeezed lime juice and had a snack during math centers. 

We also made bat masks!

Hooray bats!

I might fundamentally disagree, but at least she wrote a nice complete sentence. Avocados forever!

Nothing like starting the week with some relaxing music from the Austin Symphony. 

We always seem to have pizza on our minds…

Happy Friday! Lola’s dad read from the very cool Star Wars Heroes and Villians book and answered lots of Lola questions. We found out Lola wants to start a YouTube channel. The whole class is already excited about the future YouTube channel!

Here are a couple pages from our invented foods book! 
Tasty!

Inside each red daily folder is a coupon for a free book through scholastic online if you place a $5 order. The best part… each time you place an order I get points to get books for the class. You can see all the free books we just got in because of the previous student orders. 

Thank you for supporting our class!

I hope everyone has a great three day weekend! This past Thursday Jack’s dad read to the class and then we found out important information such as Jack’s favorite state is Georgia. Good times!
I am going to send home a sign up sheet this week if you’d like to be a mystery reader.
