Today we read the story The Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything and used musical instruments to retell the parts of the scarecrow that follow the lady.
For writing students wrote stories about a spooky night. Some students chose to write fiction stories, and some students chose to write about things that really happened.
For art students used a dice and matched numbers to shapes that they have to draw. They draw each shape as a part of a body of the scarecrow. As students complete this activity they start to notice how they are drawing the scarecrow in an unusual way.
Finally students were given the instruments and the book to use at our dramatic play center for free choice centers to retell the story on their own.
