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:
