Here's a peek at the fun writing activity we did on Tuesday-"If Spooks Could Talk". We read a fun book called "A Very Brave Witch" by Alison McGhee. The whole story is told with talking and thinking bubbles. Then we talked about some of the Halloween spooks and what they might want to say if they could talk. We did a few together. Then I had the kiddos pick a spook and write in the talking bubble what they thought it might say. Some of them were pretty funny. We put them in the hall for all to read. Here's a picture, one of the spooks and a link to the book.
We used these books "Halloween Pie" by Michael O. Tunnell and "Big Pumpkin" by Erica Silverman to study problem and solution. We also practiced retelling with "Big Pumpkin".
