Halloween is quickly approaching so I wanted to make sure to incorporate a not so scary mummy book into our literacy snack rotation. For this week’s literacy snack idea, we’re reading “Where’s My Mummy?”, by Carolyn Crimi.
“Little Baby Mummy wants just one more game of hide-and-shriek with Big Mama Mummy before bedtime. The night is deep and dark, full of friendly creatures that click their clacky teeth and whoosh past on flippy-floppy wings. But who will comfort Little Baby Mummy if a small, scritchy-scratchy someone gives him a scare? Big Mama Mummy, of course!”
For our snack this week, we are of course making a mummy!
each student will need
a slice of sandwich bread
a spoonful of pizza sauce
a cheese stick peeled in half, 2 kids can share one stick
2 candy eyes or you could have them use black olive slices
-You’ll also need a round cookie cutter for the students to share
Each student will need to take a turn using the round cookie cutter. After they have their circle bread piece, have them spoon a light layer of the pizza sauce on the bread. Next, have them take their string cheese half, and pull as many string cheese pieces off as they can, the smaller/skinnier the better. They can lay the pieces of string cheese onto the pizza sauce in random directions creating a mummy wrap look. Last, have them place either the candy eyes or olives on as the baby mummy’s eyes.
While the students are enjoying their baby mummy snacks, I created a free printable for them to work on. They get to draw a picture and write a sentence about what their mummy does when they are scared.
You can download the free printable from my teacherspayteachers store below.
I hope your students enjoy making their not so scary baby mummy snack this week!
See you next time!
