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!
Weekly Wall Recommendations
For the 2018-2019 school year, students will be choosing books to display on our classroom recommendation wall. The wall is a lending library. It showcases the various literature choices in the classroom, celebrates students' voices and choices, facilitates getting to know each other through our literature choices, and facilitates communication with the global learning community.
