baby & me: Halloween

Today, we featured a special Halloween edition of Baby & Me. 

All the babies dressed in costume; it was like a Halloween baby parade! It was so cute that it made me wish that we could all wear costumes everyday!

Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found a little black cat! What does a cat say? MEOW!

Books We Read: 
Where Is Baby’s Pumpkin- Katz
Jack & Jill- Yoon

Holiday Rhyme:
I found this special pumpkin song and we tried it as a bounce/lift rhyme with the babies. You could use it with toddlers and preschoolers with popsicle stick puppets too.

The Pumpkins Are Here
(sung to: "The Farmer in the Dell").
The pumpkins are here, the pumpkins are there. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are everywhere.
The pumpkins are up; the pumpkins are down. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are all around.
The pumpkins are in; the pumpkins are out. The pumpkins, the pumpkins are all about.
The pumpkins are low; the pumpkins are high. The pumpkins, the pumpkins all say, "Good-bye".
From Perpetual Preschool

Flannel Story: Brown Bat, Brown Bat, What Do You See?

"I see a red leaf looking at me"

I found this idea at Mel’s Desk & it was awesome! We sang to the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle” as I placed different colored Halloween & autumn themed felt pieces on the flannel board: brown bat, red leaf, gray owl, yellow moon, white ghost, black cat, & orange pumpkin. Thanks Mel for this amazing idea!

Puppet: Ghosties
I made these two ghost finger puppets from felt and we did this rhyme:

Two Little Ghosties
2 little ghosties looking at you
One named Woo, one named Boo!
Fly away Woo, fly away Boo!
Fly back Woo, fly back Boo!
From Loons and Quines

I really enjoyed today’s class, it was a smaller group than usual because of the holiday and the books & rhymes for this theme really worked. A wonderful program!
