Story - Joey the Ghost

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.
It is a really fun story that quickly gets the children and families involved.
Happy Hallowe'emn
