Day late and a dollar short, but here for next year. You can also find this video, and many others, in the discussion, It's Halloween!

Just want to say quickly - THIS IS THE RESOURCE OF THE YEAR! Or at least audio story of the year. I love the repetition, the atmosphere, how sloooooow it is for 2nd language learners. Perfect for prepositions too! And creative drawing afterwards. Wonderful, thanks.

You are funny : ) Yes, I couldn't believe I forgot about this classic! I put it, along with another version from the BBC, in the Halloween resource.

It got me thinking about doing a post on books that use a repetitive pattern to build the story- very easy for kids to emulate in their own writing (or speech), provides a nice scaffolding for creative fiction writing assignments (or just play), and of course, building fluency with language.

I keep waiting until I dig up my favorite from my kids' writing at school. Timmy wrote a story about our boxer, listing something bad he did on each page, My dog _______, followed by, "but I don't care!" Max did a lot of bad things, Timmy just told me the other day that he left some of them out because he didn't want people to think Max really was a bad dog : )

Thanks for tagging it, David- I have to remember to do that!
