Chalk-A-Bration October 2014

Happy Halloween! 
Today is Chalk-A-Bration, a celebration of chalk and poetry the last day of each month. This week we wrote a ghostly poem and students did chalk illustrations.

I asked students, "Tell me, what are some things ghosts will do or say?" Below is a list of their ideas made into a list poem. Then students took that idea and made their own illustrations for the poem.



Some students even tried to put some letters and words from the poem on their paper!



Here are all the chalker!


I hope you will join in for Chalk-A-Bration by leaving your link in the comments!

Love seeing those ghostly chalky pictures and the smiling faces behind them. We had a Chillabration Poetry Freakday. http://reflectionsontheteche.wordpress.com/2014/10/31/chill-a-bration/
