Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
My post this week is inspired by last year’s Flannel Friday Halloween Extravaganza by Read, Sarah, Read. Jennifer O’Connell’s Ten Timid Ghosts is a perfect story leading up to Halloween. For some of my storytime and outreach groups the paperback is too small, so I painted this story on a canvas board.
I added Velcro tabs to cover each ghost with curtains.
As I tell the story I add a curtain to cover the ghost who flew away.
I made flannel pieces for each creature who makes an appearance in the story so I can use this story in different ways over the course of the month in my in-house and outreach programs.
If you don’t know the story, here’s a nicely narrated YouTube clip:
