Wednesday, October 13

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost halfway through October already. After our taste of fall weather last week, we’re ready for jacket weather!

Donations Needed!

If you have unused ceramic tiles that you would like to donate to the school, please send them in. We need 4”x4” and 6”x6” tiles for our Grandparents’ Day project. Color doesn’t matter!

Halloween Week Information

On Wednesday, October 27th, our students will go trick-or-treating next door at Summer Breeze. We’ll wear our Halloween costumes on that day and walk over to visit the residents and sing our Halloween songs for them. Because we’re just across the lawn from Summer Breeze we won’t need chaperones for this “trip” but check the class monthly calendar or ask the teacher to see which day your child’s Halloween party will be. Some classes are doing parties on Wednesday after our trick-or-treating and some are waiting until Friday.

Halloween Songs

Below are the lyrics for some of the songs we’ll be singing if you’d like to practice at home.

Salute the Flag

Salute the flag,
The grand old flag
With colors red, white and blue
It stands for truth and liberty
This flag is waving for you!

Five Little Witches

There were five little witches flying in the air, flying in the air, flying in the air.
There were five little witches flying in the air
For this is Halloween!

There were four little skeletons jumping up &down...

There were three little ghosts that were staring everywhere...

There were two little goblins saying “Trick or Treat!”...

There was one little pumpkin swinging on a gate...

Eeensy Weensy Spider

The eensy weensy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the eensy weensy spider climbed up the spout again.

False Face

Who’s behind that false face?
Nobody knows but me.
Who’s behind that false face?
Nobody knows but me.

I won’t tell you.
You will have to guess.
If your guess is right,
I will answer YES!

Pumpkin Chant

Pumpkin, pumpkin
Round and fat
Turn into a jack-o-lantern
Just like that!

Stirring the Brew

Stirring and stirring and stirring our brew
(Pretend to stir something in a big pot).
(Put hands near mouth and wiggle fingers)

Tip-toe, tip-toe, tip-toe—BOO!
(With each tip-toe sing lower and use your fingers to tip-toe in the air, until BOO where you then close and open your hands next to your face, saying BOO loud!)


  1. Very cute...I picked up on some of the songs at is great to see the words. I am glad I checked the site.

  2. Eventually, I'll learn how to link it to the music too!
