When they were done reading, I had them color in a ghost who had eaten their favorite food for dinner. They also had to give their ghost a name. Here is Jake's:

Pretty simple crafts for a sick mama. I hope to rally a bit in the next few days and do a few more crafts for Halloween, but we're two crafts behind in our Mexico study for Social Studies - so we'll see what we actually get done. I'm hoping to be well again soon - being sick really slows me down!
p.s. Oh, yeah - I did weigh in last week, and lost another two pounds. I'll be heading to tops again tonight and will hopefully report tomorrow with another loss!!
