The beginning of November was spent using the book, The little old lady who was not afraid of anything. It was a great transition from Halloween to scarecrows. Here are some of the activities we did as an extension.
We learned that farmers use scarecrows to scare away crows. Then we finished the sentence prompt," I scare away . . ." For the art part we did a directed drawing activity. I love how they turned out.
These two say, "I scare away scorpions."
"I scare away roaches."
When we did a scarecrow circle map one of my little sweeties told me scarecrows scare away roaches. Um, not exactly.
The book is perfect for learning onomatopoeia. Here is the anchor chart we made.
We sang this song. The kids still break out in song whenever they hear an onomatopoeia word in a book we are reading.

We sequenced the book and retold the story using the picture clues drawn by classmates.
We measured the scarecrow and each other with pumpkins and completed the recording sheet.
We also labeled the scarecrow.
