Spooooky Storytime

On a day very close to Halloween, Storytime kids heard four stories about spooky times. In Halloween Day by Anne Rockwell, children dress in costume during their day at school, but where can their teacher be? Very Scary by Tony Johnston, told of the biggest pumpkin in the patch attracting the attention of an owl, a black cat, crickets, and something scary!
In Halloween Mice by Bethany Roberts, mice find a clever way to scare off a cat who is following them in the dark! As for Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson, three helpful animals find the witch's missing things, and the only thing they want in return is a ride on her broom. Watch the movie to see what happens to the witch and her friends!
Between stories, we made a spooky paper plate ghost to hang on Halloween night. It had long white arms and big black eyes with glow-in-the-dark stickers in the middle. Long strips of newspaper glued to hang from the plate looked like a wispy ghost body. A string on top made a loop to hang it with - and to make him swoop around the room!
