Hello Time Travelers and Banana Smoothies!
Here are some activities you can do once you have finished reading A Boy Called Bat:
Character Chart for Bat –
If you have been adding to Bat’s character chart each week, you should have a lot of information on it by now! Decorate it to look like Bat. Take a photo of you with your Bat Chart and post it on the ODE Facebook page, or email it to me. I would LOVE to see it!
This worksheet has you write about Bat’s interests as well as your own interests. This is good practice for putting your thoughts into complete sentences.
What do you like to do when your friends come over to play? What plans did Bat have for his afternoon with Israel?
Draw a picture of what you like to do with your friends (write a description underneath). Then draw a picture of what Bat and Israel did at Bat’s house.
Plant a Garden –
Bat’s mom said that he and Israel could plant seedlings in the garden. Has your family started a garden this year? I have! If you can get a hold of a packet of seeds, try planting them in a container of dirt, or in your yard. If this is not a possibility, draw pictures of plants and flowers (or cut pictures out of a magazine) and create your own paper garden.
Or, try making some paper flowers! (There are a lot of YouTube tutorials out there – I posted one on the ODE Facebook page)
Parents: Here are some very good discussion questions to use now that your child has finished reading the book. These are not my own – I found them online. (Disregard the date at the top of the page):
