You can read all about the packet in more detail in this previous post.
I had the students circle three facts they thought were interesting on their personal circle map. Then I modeled how to fill in the flow map planning sheet using a power number topic sentence.
A few smarties really wanted to write more so I told they they could if the sentences were related. One girl wrote:
Bats are helpful to humans. They eat insects that hurt crops and spread seeds so more plants grow.
Next week we will write our final drafts and make our bat craft. I'll try to take more pics of those!
The first graders are also working on ABC order so I made a Halloween cut and paste. I posted it for FREE, all I ask is you leave me a comment here and/or feedback on TpT.

The 2nd graders get to go to a pumpkin patch this week so that should be fun!
