Now I've had a lot of visitors to the classroom - a swarm of bees, a scorpion and a water scorpion to name a few. But this was my first time to have a bat drop by. It was nice of him to consider helping us with our mosquito problem but with all his swooping and carrying on it would have been hard to focus on learning. (Really, I just didn't want everyone to hear me screaming like a girl!) So I called some friends to help me catch Mr. Bat and send him on his way.
Bye, bye, Mr. Bat!
