Zombies and mummies yesterday, why not ghosts today? I love the accompanying activity guide, because it can be printed out and collated ahead of time and placed in a writing center. When students have some extra time, they can make their own How to Make Friends with a Ghost book.
Activity name: Make your own How to Make Friends with a Ghost book.
Activity description: Have the books printed out ahead of time. Then, students can fill in the missin information. First, they'll have to draw something that could be mistaken for a ghost. Second, they'll have to label the various parts of a ghost. Third, they'll have to write a short autobiography. Fourth, they'll have to craft a recipe their ghost might enjoy. Finally, students will have to identify a food item their ghost is sometimes mistaken for. Tons of ghostly fun!
4N Essays Are Taking Off!
For the rest of the 2018-2019 school year, students will be writing essays about the books they recommend on our back bulletin board and their writing will be featured on our front bulletin board. Look for essays to be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Celebrate with us as we grow as readers and writers.
