Stellaluna Literacy Unit

Happy Friday! As promised- below is a compilation of the activities the Stellaluna book group produced during our meeting on 9/8. It seems appropriate to use for the month of October (bats), but could be used any time of year! (Here is a link to the story read aloud.)


  • Compare/contrast (i.e. birds/bats)
  • Categories/Sorting (i.e. Nocturnal animals, day animals)
  • Prediction
  • Inferencing
  • EET (i.e. bat, bird)
  • Vocabulary (i.e. swoop, nocturnal, habitat)
  • Core Vocabulary (i.e. basic concepts, verbs) – fringe at top of core board
  • Opposites (i.e. in/out, up/down, night/day, etc.)
  • Identifying emotions
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Sentence formulation with vocabulary
  • WH Questions


  • Bat craft for following directions
  • Mango Smoothie (i.e. sequencing, following directions)
  • Story Retell with popsicle stick puppets

There are also several FREE activities listed on TPT.
