Frankenstein in the Library - Multi Media Fun for all ages

I am going to skip telling you how much I love Halloween, bla bla bla.... we all do and it is the best time of year in the Library, right? OK - established, here are some really fun Frank resources that came together quickly and easily for multiple grades this week.

David Catrow's Monster Mash is delightfully illustrated and just spooky enough to keep elementary schoolers' attention. When presented with the original song this book makes for a FUN way to start the hour.

Frank was a Monster who wanted to Dance - what fun! The pictures are beautiful and original through and through. Stumbling upon the animated video was such a bonus - especially when Frank boogies and has the greatest voice. A short story enhanced by the animation is perfect for the younger Halloween fans.

 To top things off or entice the kids to be on task this week we have ended class with the "Monster Mash" on Just Dance. The dance is a slow-ish pace, perfect for the younger grades and makes for a fun "circle" lesson.
