Shaun the Sheep

My Wednesday after school kids and I had a wonderful time watching Shaun the Sheep.  There was much laughter and Shaun and the other sheep try to rescue their farmer from the "big city".

Afterwards, I though it would be fun to turn someone into a sheep.  I wasn't expecting so many volunteers!  Here are a few during the process:

October Fun

Wow!  I can't believe that we are already at the end of October.  It has been a busy and fun month!
Our Wednesday after school movie and activity program has been wonderful!  I am showing movies the kids are a little less familiar with and introducing them to some new characters and stories.  We have also done more literacy based activities.
Here is the scary story we wrote for Halloween, which each kid adding a sentence as we went along:


Scary Story – Oct. 14, 2015
It’s was a dark and stormy night, and there were two little kids in a deep dark scary haunted castle.   They were playing hot potato.  The potato hit one of the kids in the face and exploded.  What was left fell into a fryer and the two kids ate the potato.  Suddenly, a zombie fell from the ceiling and landed at their feet.  They hit the zombie in the face with a spoon.  And the kids started laughing until the zombie’s head feel off.  Vampires appeared and flew around them.  The kids screamed until the vampires fell to the ground.  Then skeletons tried to kill them with swords.  One of the kids grabbed the fry oil and poured over the skeletons.  The skeletons boiled and the kids knocked them down with torches.  Then ghosts wondered around trying to find the kids.  Bats flew in.  The kids opened the curtains and the vampires melted.  So they took a donut break. 
 
Outside in the graveyard a dog was hunting for a bone.  The dog saw a vampire and the vampire bit the dog and there is now a vampire dog in the graveyard.  The dog’s puppies turned into skeleton puppies.   The skeleton puppies fell through the dirt into a dark and scary cave.  The puppies lost their heads. The kids left the graveyard while the zombies started to break dance until their legs fell off.  Suddenly the kids made snow angels and a snowman.  The snow angels came to life and tried to attack everybody in the world.  Then the snowman came to life.  And the snow angels flew away.  So they took another donut break and played dress up instead.






Don't forget "Trunk or Treat"
