I'm very lucky to belong to a storytelling group with other early childhood educators and teachers. We get together once a month to share stories and learn from each other.
This month Jenny quickly shared a story about a ghost that changes colours by eating food. I've heard other versions of this story but I liked how Jenny emphasizes the spooky sound of the fridge.
So I quickly made ghosts from tissue paper and laminated them. Then found clip art food pictures and put magnets on the back. I made a fridge (Fright-a-dare) door from cardboard and taped it to my magnetic board and we were ready for story time.
