Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler is a great book to read in October! This story is about a skeleton who wakes up with the hiccups and all throughout the book he is trying to get rid of them. At the end of the story, he scares HIMSELF by looking in the mirror at his reflection and the hiccups go away!
Before reading the story I ask if anyone has ever had the hiccups...How did you get rid of them? (prior knowledge) As I read the story, I ask the students to hiccup when the skeleton hiccups in the story. They have so much fun giggling and hiccuping!
Right before the part of the story where the skeleton holds up the mirror, I stop and let the students predict what they think will happen...How will the skeleton finally get rid of the hiccups?
After reading, we made this cute skeleton and wrote about what happens at the beginning, middle and end of the story. Click Here To Download
