We read The Secret of Spooky House. The secret was that the monsters in the house ate popcorn. The story made us hungry! We decided we wanted to eat some popcorn. We used a hot air popper, and we got a big monster-sized bowl from the cafeteria to hold the popcorn. We watched the popcorn kernels pop. We each made two paper containers for the popcorn. We designed the containers ourselves. We used tape to hold the containers together. We had to decide which container we made would hold the most popcorn, and then our teacher filled that container. Some of our containers held 3 scoops! We each got 1 scoop of popcorn. We ate our popcorn while we listened to The Popcorn Dragon story.

Wow! That sounds like a great story! I remember when my Mom made popcorn in a hot air popper and I loved the sounds of the popcorn popping. Hope you continue to explore and have fun!

Hi Crickets!
Cool popcorn containers - you have lots of creative designs! I've never read The Secret of Spooky House, but it sounds like a great Halloween story. Now I'm hungry for popcorn, too!

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. You inspired me to pop a bowl full and crack open a book that I enjoy. Thanks for the inspiration!

You all looked like you were having so much fun making your containers. And I'm sure the popcorn tasted really good. Does the Popcorn Dragon eat popcorn too?
