After reading The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything, we retold the story by making our scarecrow parts...
2 shoes that went clomp, clomp
1 pair of pants that went wiggle, wiggle,
1 shirt that went shake, shake,
1 pair of gloves that went clap, clap
1 hat that went nod, nod
and 1 scary pumpkin head that went... BOO! BOO!
We then wrote descriptive sentences about our scarecrows using our Write From the Beginning thinking map format.
I had the kids use sheets of 8 1/2 by 11 paper for the parts, but since they came out so huge, I'd recommend cutting that in half. :)
