Halloween Story Time (2019)

Welcome Song: Clap and Sing Hello (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)
We clap and sing hello,
We clap and sing hello,
With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

We tap and sing hello (tap knees) //
We stretch and sing hello (stretch arms up) //
We wave and sing hello (wave)

Song: The Grand Old Duke of York

Song: Eeny Meeny Miny Mo
Eeny meeny miny mo,
Let me hear your hands go,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap!

Sounds so good, sounds so fine,
Let me hear it one more time!
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap!

Feet go stomp // Tongue go click // Mouth go shhh

Book: Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

room-on-a-broom

It’s not officially a Halloween book but it’s one of my favorites so it always gets read a lot this time of year. This book always gets a big reaction from the little guys because Netflix has apparently made a video of this story. One of the adults came up to me afterwards and told me she loves this book and it was nice to listen to someone else read it out loud. 🙂

Flannel: Five Little Pumpkins

Song: The Witch on the Broom (to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus)
The with on the broom goes hee, hee, hee,
Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee, hee,
The witch on the broom goes hee, hee, hee,
All through the night.

The ghost in the castle goes boo, boo, boo //
The werewolf in the field goes hoooooowl //
The Frankenstein monster goes stomp, stomp, stomp //
The cat in the night goes meow, meow, meow

Book: Stumpkin by Lucy Ruth Cummins

Stumpkin doesn’t have a stem like the other pumpkins. Will he ever find a family who will take him home for Halloween?

Song: Three Little Witches (to the tune of 10 Little Indians)
One little, two little, three little witches,
Flying over haystacks,
Soaring over ditches,
One little, two little, three little witches,
Happy Halloween!
