Do you remember hearing the story The Chocolate Chip Ghost when you were little? This story has been retold by primary teachers for years and years. There is a book available now as well. I created a resource that is full of everything you could possibly want when studying this ever popular story. I have included my own version of this story that goes along with all of the activities. If you own the book, this is the perfect time to talk about different versions of popular stories.
The unique paper towel craft will really help students commit this story to memory.
There is so much in this resource that it is difficult to explain it all!
