Halloween Storytime

Our books today were all about Halloween! To get in the spooky mood, we read Pumpkin Eye by Denise Fleming, a story that showed the scary side of Halloween. We read Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman, a funny story about a witch with a pumpkin so big, she couldn't get it off the vine, even with the help of spooky friends. In The Biggest Pumpkin by Stephen Kroll, two mice took care of the same pumpkin at different times. I think our favorite was Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson, about a witch who meets friends while out on a broom ride.

We made ghosts at craft time by gluing cotton balls all over a ghost form. Then we gave him eyes and a mouth that showed if he was a spooky, funny, or even sad. We added black yarn to the top so he could swoop and fly!
Happy Halloween from all of us at the Gordon-Nash!
