More Bats---some writing ideas!

Bat Loves the Night, by Nicola Davies

I love this book: Bat Loves the Night, by Nicola Davies.  She is a wonderful writer--and it is filled with beautiful pros.  I love using this as a mentor text to help student expand their sentences to include metaphors and wonderful descriptions.  It also can introduce student to labeling.  

With this text--a student student could write a paragraph--and of course depending on the age of the student and their abilities--they could write more!

I love this book, I Wanna Iguana, by Karen Kaufman Orloff.  The little boy really wants a pet iguana, and he writes his mother friendly letters to convince her of benefits of owning a pet iguana!  Wouldn't it be fun to write a friendly letter to the principal, grownup, or anyone trying to convince them of the benefits of owning a pet bat!  How else could you get rid of the bug infestation of your home/ school.

Here is a template for the friendly letter--I Wanna Bat!
