Skeleton Hiccups

For a little reader’s response fun, we read this book…

SO darling!  And then we got to problem solving.  The kids had to write using the prompt, “I would get rid of a skeleton’s hiccups by…”.  Their answers were pretty dang cute!  I drew the skeleton face & hips and had a mom cut them out.  Then the kids decided how the rest of the skeleton would look!  LOVE IT!!  My favorite part is how different each of them look.  Too dang cute!

This might be one of my most favorite writing activities of the year…I’m just sayin’.  I’ve done this for the last 7 years and I always look forward to it!!  And the kids love it, too!!
