Shake Dem Halloween Bones

We made pumpkin maracas by putting torn orange paper and beans in a small water bottle and then adding a face with black construction paper. After we were finished we read Shake Dem Halloween Bones. In the story it has parts where the students get to shake their maracas to the rhythm. We talked about how the rhythm is a pattern and then we came up with some of our own patterns to make with the maraca. Too Fun!
