I MADE A JACK-O-LANTERN

I made a jack-o-lantern for halloween night.

(form circle w/ hands)

He has three crooked teeth, but he won’t bite

(point to teeth, shake head no)

He has two round eyes, but he can not see

(point to eyes, shut them)

He’s a jolly jack-o-lantern as happy as can be.

(smile!)

To celebrate the first day of fall, we said this rhyme to the rhythm of Ring Around the Rosey:

All the leaves, come here

Summer’s gone till next year

Autumn, Autumn

We all fall down!

My students also were assigned autumn colors and then the first line could be changed to:

Yellow leaves, come here

And only those students would join the circle.


Halloween is Here (tune: Farmer in the Dell)

Oh, Halloween is here!

Oh, Halloween is here!

With costumes on we’ll walk around

We’ll knock on doors all over town,

When Halloween is here!

Hello Halloween!

Hello witches, hello ghosts,

Hello pumpkins on the posts.

Hello goblins and black cats,

Hello skeletons, hello bats!

Hello owls and hello moon!

Halloween is coming soon!


Have You Seen…..? (sung to “The Muffin Man”)

Have you seen the pumpkin man,

The pumpkin man, the pumkin man

Have you seen the pumpkin man,

Who lives in the pumpkin patch?

Have you seen the old black witch,

The old black witch, the old black witch,

Have you seen the old black witch,

Who lives in the haunted house?

Have you seen the scary ghost,

The scary ghost, the scary ghost,

Have you seen the scary ghost,

Who lives in the old ghost town?

Have you seen the big black bat,

The big black bat, the big black bat,

Have you seen the big black bat,

Who lives in the cold dark cave?

Yes, we have. We’ve seen these things,

Seen these things, seen these things,

Yes, we have, we’ve seen these things,

We saw them on Halloween!

Pumpkin Bells (Sung to the tune Jingle Bells).

Dashing through the streets,

In our costumes bright as day,

To each house we go,

Laughing all the way!

Halloween is here,

Making spirits bright,

What fun it is to trick-or-treat,

And sing pumpkin carols tonight!

(Chorus)

Oh, pumpkin bells, pumpkin bells,

Ringing loud and clear!

Oh what fun Great Pumpkin brings when Halloween is here!

Oh!

Pumpkin bells, pumpkin bells,

Ringing loud and clear!

Oh what fun Great Pumpkin brings when Halloween is here!
