Do you love fall in the classroom as much as I do? I may not care for actual spiders and bats in real life, but I absolutely can’t get enough of them in the classroom! Students go crazy for all things creepy crawly in October.
So many of our October Rooted in Reading books have themes of pumpkins, spiders, bats, and owls. I wanted to create a research document that could be used by any of our RiR grade levels. So, here’s what I came up with:
I created a Research Resource list for each topic with online resources and videos for your students to utilize. Then I created a Research booklet that could be used with any topic you choose!
Our first topic is spiders. I found 7 great online resources for your students to use.
The second topic is all about pumpkins.
You can use the pumpkin research with Picnic at Mudsock Meadow in third grade.
Or Pumpkin Soup in first grade!
Our third topic is BATS!
Our last fall topic is Owls!
Owl research would be so much fun to do with Hoot in Peep in 1st Grade!
