Ghosts in the House
R LOVES the book, Ghosts in the House! by Kazuno Kohara so I knew we had to do a book project before returning it to the library. If you are not familiar with this book, we definitely recommend it. The plot is simple: a girl goes to live in a house but it is haunted. Luckily, she is a witch and she knows just what to do with those ghosts. R's favorite part of the book is when the witch puts all of the ghosts in the washing machine; R laughs every time we read this. I love the simplicity of this book, and I also love that the witch and ghosts are cute, adorable actually!
Our project was simple. We followed the color scheme (orange, black, and white) of the book and placed a black construction paper house on top of orange paper. Then we used white tissue paper to make a bunch of ghosts and glued them on and around the house. R drew faces on her ghost friends. She was very happy with her picture!
