PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I love doing this project with my kids around Halloween! They have to read a story that I wrote called Madame Periwinkles Halloween Brew. Madame Periwinkle is a kind, old witch who loves to entertain her friends with Halloween cookies and her brew. Something happens in the story that requires the kids to help Madame Periwinkle.

Activities include: Finding rhyming words in the story and then writing a poem using the words. Putting the way to make her brew in sequential order by cutting out strips of events, and drawing pictures of the different characters and objects and coloring them according to the descriptions in the story. This is a great activity for small groups.

You will need colored pencils. Crayons are okay too! Scissors and orange, green, yellow or black construction paper, glue sticks. The Halloween template for their poems is included. Answers are included!

I'm a teacher/author and offer Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, American History, Novel Packets, Grammar, Back to School, Holidays, Writing, Poetry, Spelling, Teacher forms products and more!

Take a stroll over to my blog, Teacher Park, where you'll find more teaching ideas resources, products and freebies. You can follow me on Teacher Park and on TeachersPayTeachers Thanks! Ruth

What a great story! Thanks for sharing your creativity. I am going to use the sequencing in the library(with second grade) in small groups after doing the first two together.
On  October 15, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi! Thank you so much! What a perfect Halloween library activity! I love knowing how teachers use my stories and other teaching materials. It's fun to have the kids write letters to Madame Periwinkle to tell her THEY were the ones who put her recipe card back in order! :)
I really appreciate your comment and rating. Have a wonderful year!

This is a great packet with fun activities that my students will enjoy! I'm looking forward to using this with them! Thanks so much for sharing!
On  September 29, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi! You're very welcome. I love, love, love sharing my ideas and packets with other teachers! My goal with having students draw pictures based on the descriptions in the story was basically to see how carefully they read the story but I never expected them to draw such cute their illustrations. :) The sequential activity can be challenging for some students which is why I often let them work in small groups. I really appreciate your comment and rating! Have a wonderful new school year!

Love it! Great for speech and language activities too!

Hi Nenithel! Thank you for downloading my Madame Periwinkle packet! I really appreciate your comment and rating. :) It's funny you said it's also great for speech and language. I modify my lessons each year, and this year, I was going to add a new activity, which is having the kids write and act out a skit! I'm going to add that part to the packet soon. Have a great year!

Ruth,
I contacted you last week about Madame Periwinkle not printing all of the pages. It has been very frustrating to complete the activity without the other pages. Please tell me how to fix the problem.

Christine! I'm so sorry!!!! I was told that someone would contact you! I have a meeting tonight but will send it to you as soon as I get home. I'm on the East coast so depending on where you are, you should have it before school tomorrow. I think I'll send it in small packets. I'll be sending it to the email address you gave me.
Thanks so much for letting me know!
