We made an extra one for our monthly handprint framed art. She got a little crazy with the mouth and it looks kinda like an angry ghost, don't you think? I might try to redo it for a cuter end result, cause I'm type A like that:) But so far, ER is very into her scary one!

I pulled Ten Timid Ghosts out of my classroom library last week and we read the cute backwards counting book about ten timid ghosts scared out of their haunted house by a witch. The twist on this rhyming tale is that the ghosts ban together to get rid of the witch in the end.We made our own handprint version of the story for a book related art extention project. ER traced the numbers of each ghost onto her handprints and made the eyes and mouth. I don't know how ghost like our prints look. She was not in an overly cooperative mood and kept spreading her fingers but likes the end result a lot, especially the one witch. It was a good way to practice counting, one to one correspondance, and pencil handling skills. It kept us busy for quite some time and she sure worked hard making those faces!
