Next, we read a 3:15 story by Patrick Carman, the author of the Skeleton Creek series. The story had 3 parts (listening, reading, and watching) and took about 15 minutes to complete. We then began our spooky stations. Students rotated through 5 stations: a spooky read aloud station, an independent reading station, an art station where they created sugar skulls and discussed the Day of the Dead, a science station where they did a STEM activity using toothpicks and pumpkin candies, and a writing station where they wrote two sentence horror stories and published them using iPads. Here are a few pictures from our morning.
We look forward to seeing everyone for our last two sessions of 2014! Have a great week!
