Thank you, I will if you invite...

Do you love the story, Witch, Which Come To My Party, as much as I do?
|It's by Arden Druce and illustrated by Pat Ludlow.|
The illustrations are amazing and the story creates a "circle story" that ends up exactly where it began.
|The illustrations are filled with hidden clues like the wolf hiding behind the tree.|
My kids made their own version...
... to take home and read to their parents.
But wait... you don't have to stick with the Halloween theme. You can choose ANY THEME:
Thanksgiving, Christmas, any holiday, any story, nursery rhyme characters. The choices are endless.
Here is an example of our Halloween theme:

They got to choose any characters they wanted, I wrote them down on lined Post-its, and they copied and illustrated.
|The pumpkin wanted to invite the cat, and the vampire wanted to invite the skeleton.|
Since I am teaching a TK/K combination class, the T.K. kids got to create only 3 pages and the kindergarten kids got to create 5 pages. Each character invites a new character, but the last one invites the very first character so the story can start all over again.
|They had so much fun thinking up new characters to invite.|
The best part was that we got to have a nice discussion about CHARACTERS.
We were able to complete 3-5 pages in a 30 minute small group setting. Then, they got to read their own story to a friend before taking it home. It was a huge hit!
Here are the new templates I made for you:

Just imagine writing this book with a nursery rhyme theme:
"Jack, Jack, please come to my party." "Thank you, I will, if you invite Jill."
"Jill, Jill, please come to my party." "Thank you, I will, if you invite Little Bo Peep."
"Bo Peep, Bo Peep, please come to my party." "Thank you, I will, if you invite Little Boy Blue."
You get the idea :o)
