A Scrooge visit!

on December 17, 2012

Today we listened to the first two instalments of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Then we had a visit from Ebenezer Scrooge!
We asked him some questions like

When did you start hating Christmas?
Why do you hate kids?
How strong was your relationship with Marley?
What feelings did you feel when you heard the ghost of Marley?
Why do you always say humbug?
What is the worst thing you ever did?
Did you have a happy life before you had a dark life?
Why did you choose to be a money-collector?
Why didn’t you take Marley’s name off the board?
Do you really think money is more important than Christmas?
Was Marley your only friend?
Do you ever see your family?
How many times have you thought of Marley after his death?

We thought of some words to describe Scrooge like,
scary
cold hearted
vicious
despicable
Putrid
Isolated
Evil
Frightening
Aggressive
Old
Awful
Upsetting
Angry
Lonely
Horrid
Frozen minded
Loveless
Creepy
Icy breath
Mean

Scrooge had many objects with him in his trunk – his clock which had stopped, his book of money collecting, and a scary picture of Marley’s ghost!

This afternoon we watched the film A Christmas carol it was funny scary and the moral of the story was not to be nasty to others and not to hate Christmas.
We thought Ruby would make a great Scrooge so when he wasn’t around we dressed her up!
