MRS. OWL

Mrs. Owl sits up in a tree. (Sign owl)

She’s as happy as can be (Pull corners of mouth up to smile with index finger)

She blinks, blinks, blinks (Blink eyes three times)

She thinks, thinks, thinks (Tap head three times)

I wonder what she can see? (look puzzled)


SCARECROW       Tune:  Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear Turn Around

Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, wink one eye.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend your knees.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, flap in the breeze.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head.


HALLOWEEN  Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle

Halloween has come at last.

Jack-o-lanterns and black cats.

Funny faces round about.

People laugh and people shout.

The moon shines bright and cats meow.

Meow, meow, meow, meow.


WHAT AM I?

A face so round (With both hands form a large circle)

And eyes so bright (Point to eyes)

A nose that glows, (Touch nose)

My what a sight! (Clap hands)

A funny mouth (Touch mouth)

With a jolly grin. (Grin with mouth)

No arms. No legs. (Shake arms, then touch legs)

Just head to chin. (Place one hand on head and other on chin)

What am I?


WE ARE PUMPKINS BIG AND ROUND Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb

We are pumpkins big and round, big and round, big and round;

We are pumpkins big and round, sitting on the ground.

See our great big shiny eyes, shiny eyes, shiny eyes;

See our great big shiny eyes, looking right at you.

See our great big laughing mouth, laughing mouth, laughing mouth,

See our great big laughing mouth, smiling right at you.


ONCE I HAD A PUMPKIN Tune: Did You Ever See a Lassie?

Once I had a pumpkin, a pumpkin, a pumpkin,

Once I had a pumpkin, with no face at all.

With no eyes and no nose, and no mouth and no teeth.

Once I had a pumpkin with no face at all.

So I made a jack-o-lantern, a jack-o-lantern, a jack-o-lantern,

So I made a jack-o-lantern, with a big funny face.

With big eyes and a big nose, and a big mouth with big teeth.

So I made a jack-o-lantern with a big funny face.


THE HALLOWEEN PARTY  Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb

Pump-kins have such hap-py grins, hap-py grins, hap-py grins.

Pump-kins have such hap-py grins. It’s Hal-low-een at last.

Cats have come with long, black tails, long, black tails, long, black tails.

Cats have come with long, black tails. It’s Hal-low-een at last.

Ghosts have come to school to-day, school to-day, school to-day.

Ghosts have come to school to-day. It’s Hal-low-een at last.

Witch-es have their witch-es brooms, witch-es brooms, witch-es brooms.

Witch-es have their witch-es brooms. It’s Hal-low-een at last.


THREE GREEN GOBLINS      Tune: Are You Sleeping?

Three green goblins, three green goblins,

Danced on Halloween, danced on Halloween.

One was a fat one, one was a skinny one,

And one was in between, one was in between.


BLACK CAT       Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb

We saw a black cat, black cat, black cat.

We saw a black cat on Halloween.

He was stretching his paws, his paws, his paws.

He was stretching his paws on Halloween.
