10 Timid Ghosts by Jennifer O'Connell is a bestselling counting book for beginning readers, and it is filled with ghosts, a witch, and spooky fun! Your students will love the story, the interactive felt board, and being able to cut and glue the characters in sequence.

What to do:

- Trace stencils on corresponding colored felt (use white pencil on dark felt) *don't forget to trace 10 ghosts!
- Cut out windows and door from haunted house, use as stencils (you can leave the house and roof as one piece, or separate them to use different colors)
- Trace stencils on corresponding colored felt
- Cut each piece out (If you do not have felt scissors, invest in some!)
- Sew or glue (craft glue or hot glue) pieces together *I use hot glue
- Glue medium googly eyes on ghosts
How to Use Felt Story:
- Sit down with felt board (or magnet board) and 10 Timid Ghosts book
- Place haunted house and all 10 ghosts on board
- Read story, removing one ghost at time
- When story is complete, place all ghosts back on board
- You can stick the harder side of velcro tabs to the back of the felt pieces to help them stick better
- If you don't have a felt board you can put magnets on the back and use with a magnet or smart board
- You can easily make a felt board by finding an old framed picture (I found one at a garage sale) at least 11x14 (mine is 16x20), and take out the glass. Then wrap the backing of the frame with a large piece of felt (I just stapled it) and secure to frame. Viola!
