There was cuteness everywhere as nine babies joined together for a Halloween celebration. The babies looked very cute dressed up as a skeleton, ladybug, flower, tiger, mouse, owl, monster, and bunny. We sang happy birthday with the bunny’s extended family. She turned 1 today! We sang lots of songs and rhymes, blew bubbles and danced a bit. The parade through the library was a great time for all.
This is one of the fun songs we sang.
The witch has an itch. The witch has an itch.
Oh where, oh where does the witch have an itch?
On her tiny little _____, her tiny little _____.
The witch has an itch on her tiny little ______.
(Fill in the blanks with different body parts. We used head, shoulders, knees and toes.
We had children in costume today, and they were great listeners. We read many books.
We started with Where the Wild Things Are
Then we had fun with this story that has 2 flaps on each page. One is a good outcome. One is a scary silly outcome. The children found this very funny.
With a book like Can YOU make a SCARY FACE?, you don’t need to offer rhymes or songs in between stories. Children stand up during the book and act out many scenarios.
I told the story of Little Red Riding Hood and then read Go Away Big Green Monster.
We finished with another book by Ed Emberley and his daughter Rebecca.
