baby & me: halloween

Today was time for another Halloween edition of Baby & Me. 

Many of the babies dressed in costume this year which is sooo fun! We had an astronaut, a cupcake, an owl, a fish, a princess, some pumpkins, and a Winnie the Pooh, just to name a few! I dressed as a black cat!

Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found a little baby pumpkin! What color is a pumpkin?

I re-used many of the same things as last year since things had gone so well. Sorry for the repetition but I love recycling a few of my favorites each year!

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

Holiday Rhyme:
This is a great fall themed song to use 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".

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

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 planned to re-use this song but my voice is still weak at times so I skipped it this year.

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

We had a wonderful group today with about 17 babies. Everyone was participating and singing along. Another great class!
