scarecrow directed drawing

I received many emails asking how I did this directed drawing activity with my class. So this year when I did it with my kiddos I snapped some pictures. Here are the steps. Fold your paper into thirds.
hat and brim
 face, eyes, and stitching
 nose and mouth
 shirt and overall straps
 overall bottoms, buttons, and pockets
 outline in black crayon and color
 The finished product!

Have your kids brainstorm what they would like to have scared away (bad dreams, snakes, nightmares, roaches, homework, monsters). Then have them complete the writing prompt, I scare away . . .
Here are some more activites we did to go along with this book

I love your ideas! You're so creative. When you do a book activity/ comprehension, how often do you read the book? I want to do a sequencing story so how many times would I read it before doing a sequencing activity? I'm a Title I teacher so I don't get much time with the kids.
