This Halloween, Primary classes were ‘treated” to two stories . I read A Teeny Tiny Halloween, a new picturebook written by Lauren L. Wohl and illustrated by Henry Cole. It is loosely based on the old English ghost tale, The Teeny Tiny Woman so I read this traditional version first. Afterwards, the students shared what was similar and different between the two stories. It was a literary opportunity for children to hear a traditional folktale and a fragmented version of it.
Mystery books were promoted to the Intermediate classes and some saw the video version of an old cautionary tale told in verse titled The Spider and the Fly.
