A few words from Tina
Welcome to October!
The children have all settled in nicely to the program.
During the month of October we will be concentrating on Fall and Halloween. At circle time, the group will play “Pumpkin Patch” as a way to continue with turn-taking activities. We are excited to start cooperating and working with others!! Socialization and effective communication with adults and peers are my main focus right now. Emergent curriculum has us watching the children closely and we are slowly phasing in new activities.
Here are our Halloween songs:
5 Little Pumpkins
5 little pumpkins; sitting on a gate. (Hold up 5 fingers)
The first one says “Oh my! It’s getting late”.
The second one says “There are witches in the air!”
The third one says “Well we don’t care!”
The fourth one says ”Let’s have some fun!”
The fifth one says “let’s run and run and run!
“Woooooooohhhh” went the wind and (loud clap) out went the light.
And 5 little pumpkins, roll out of sight (roll hands)
(Tune: Farmer in the Dell)
The owl goes hoo, (cup hands to mouth) The owl goes hoo,
Hi ho on Halloween, the owl goes hoo.
Other verses: The ghost goes boo (wave hands out in front)
The bats go eek (flap arms)
The pumpkin rolls around (roll hands)
The scarecrow waves good-bye (wave)
