    The Starry Night

    Hello fellow 2nd grade teacher,

    I just got finished reading Henry and Mudge and the Starry Night with my students; which is in our Reading Basal.

    After reading the story and doing activities for the week, we had an indoor campfire on Friday. The students made wood, fire, and rocks out of paper. I brought in a hiking backpack, flashlights, marshmallows and graham crackers, and the students had written scary stories to share with the class around the "fire". One student cut holes in a piece of construction paper and we put it on the overhead. When we turned out the lights it made stars in the sky. Also, we played games like The Telephone Game where students whisper something around the circle and see if the message changes by the end. The kids loved it!

    Hope this helps,
