Beginner classrooms are looking forward to our annual Halloween celebration. Students and teachers (and hopefully some parents!) will dress in costume and enjoy some light refreshments in their respective classrooms. “Hidden” around the classroom will be individual goodie bags, labeled with each child’s picture, for the students to find.
After refreshments, we will gather together in the gym for a division-wide song circle with Ms. Katie. The students have been busy practicing the fun, seasonal rhymes we will recite and the songs we will sing. This is a great opportunity to integrate language and music curriculum with an exploration of autumn—not to mention, it is always a special treat for children to rhyme and sing with their parents at school!
Below are the words to the rhymes, as well as links to the songs. See if your child recognizes these at home! We look forward to seeing families on the morning of the 31st.
Mean Old Witch
I'm a mean old witch with a hat
and I ride on my broom with my cat
My nose is pointy and my shoes are too
You better watch out or I'll scare you
First you take a pumpkin
big and round and fat
then you cut the top off
that will make the hat
scoop out all the seeds
make the nose, mouth and eyes
show it to the children for a
Stirring My Brew
