53 Resources for a Monster Mash Library Program for K-3: http://www.worldcat.org/profiles/MissHayleyMac/lists/1923337
Includes media and fiction and nonfiction books on the topic of monsters as well as other Halloween themes.

Follow the link for the handout for a "Halloween Fun" program for families with children of all ages.  I make Dem Bones into a movement story, encouraging the audience to find and touch their different bones.  I make "Walkin' Home on Halloween" into a creative dramatic by having volunteers dress as a ghost (white sheet), witch (hat and broom), and wolf (use puppet). 

For the teens who happened upon the program (!), I encouraged them to think about what they wanted to pursue after high school.  I stressed the importance of the oral storytelling tradition, and encouraged them to become storytellers or write and illustrate their own stories/graphic novels.  As we were talking about bones, I also asked if they had learned about them already, or if they were interested in entering the medical profession.
