Click, Clack,Boo!:A Tricky Treat
Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat - Doreen Cronin,Betsy Lewin

Written by: Doreen Cronin 

Illustrated by: Betsy Lewin 

 

The book is about Farmer Brown, who does not like Halloween, getting scared by all the different noises he hears outside his window the night of Halloween. Meanwhile, all the farm animals are in the barn having a Halloween party. Eventually, Farmer Brown hears one of the noises and notices it sounds like one of his farm animals, so he goes to check it out and steps into the barn party only to find out he has won the BEST costume!

 

I would use this book for 2nd-4th grade. It is a cute book to read around Halloween because it has different costumes the animals are wearing and spooky noises that Farmer Brown hears during the night. This book, like Click, Clack,Moo, has much repetition in it. This allows students to become more involved in the reading and want to read it again and again! I think a fun activity you could do with this book is having the students pick out which animal they think had the BEST costume, draw a picture of it, and write why they think that animal should win.

"26 Literary Costumes You Need To Wear This Halloween!"

Anyone dressing up this year? Going to any costume parties?

 

I'm probably not but if I were picking a costume from this list, I would probably go with Elizabeth Bennet- Zombie Killer! : ) What's your favorite?

 

 

Can anyone guess what the most popular adult costume is going to be?

 

D. Trump & H. Clinton

 

Yep- Unfortunately, I think we're going to see a lot of Donald Trump's & Hillary Clinton's! : (

In Which I Have The Power Of Time Travel....

Sitting on the desk next to me is a stack of books that I've finished (some, months ago) but need to write reviews for, and I'm suddenly thinking "hey I could do that now..."

 

And then I remember I have this work-related writing I need to finish tomorrow which is why I'm only just glancing around in here, and nothing else! Yep, things to do, so this is just a momentary read of my dash and then I'm offline....

 

And then I realize I have just managed to time travel a decade or two back and suddenly I am Student Me!

[Sound effect: 80s techno music! Brief and non-obnoxious clip, though possibly earwormy!]

With a project due suddenly I realize hey, there's this shiny-fun-amusing-fascinating-thing that I could stop and mess with for only, what, 30 minutes or so, it would only be a bit of rest - it wouldn't take any time at all - and then I'd go back to complete my assignment!

Procrastination Powers, Activated!

 

However (after a short struggle) I did manage to find my way back through the mysterious time vortex and return to my normal self. Or maybe it was a portal? And the vortex that I managed to avoid was actually what would have sucked me into YouTube looking for 80s music to link in order to earworm anyone reading - which would have turned into several hours of time vanished. (In case you were wondering why I didn't link to an actual clip up there!) Because I know that one band's video would lead to looking at another, because I'd be reminded of it by the first band... And then there's a new album on Spotify I need to listen to...

 

....Hmmm.

 

[Makes note to set aside music-video-googling-time for Saturday night. Because I'll have the writing done then. Yes, I will. Shut up, stack of not-reviewed-yet-books. I'll play with you later.]

 

Student Me's two main distractions, especially during the weeks before finals:

1) random art projects involving collage or drawing/painting/writing on jackets,

and/or

2) reading the romance/fantasy/scifi paperback with the goofiest cover I could find in one of the two shops in walking distance on campus (ah, the joys of not having a car! also the annoyance of not finding anything amusing and having to settle for a magazine, which never was as fun)

 

You know you're the bookish sort when your wild procrastination fun is reading another book - but something not assigned!

 

Now I'm going to go pretend to go to bed at a decent hour so I can get up incredibly early and work. ...I will however be reading something before I go to sleep, and I sense it will probably have a goofy (or at least laughable in a genre kinda way) cover.

 

[Has Student Me triumphed and remained here in my own time?! Who can say!]
