Halloween is just around the corner, so why not incorporate a little “spook” into your teaching? Whether you are a parent, elementary school teacher, or a private teacher, you can add something fun to do with the little ones this Halloween.  Check out The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams.  This book lends itself to an exciting lesson in which you can incorporate many different kinds of rhythmic instruments to play the parts of spooky sound effects that all children will find exciting.  Be prepared to “SHAKE, SHAKE,” and “WIGGLE, WIGGLE” along with this terrifying tale.
