Halloween....all week long starting with Baby Bloomers

This has been a great week, I decided to celebrate Halloween all week long, truly when will I have a chance to wear my orange jack-o-lantern shirt other than this week.  I had asked our parents to bring their children in costumes if they wanted to....and everyone did. We also had a new baby join us for the very first time- two weeks old. The sweets, littlest baby ever.

Opening Song
We have been skipping our opening song and just having my puppet mouse go around and say hello to each child. Followed by around of

A wiggle, wiggle here
A wiggle, wiggle there.
Wiggle your hands up in the air
Wiggle our shoulders and wiggle your hips,
Wiggle your knees and move your lips,
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle
And wiggle and bend
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
And this is the end!

 This week we read 
Book Five Little Pumpkins by Michael Scott
Our Nursery rhyme/ Action Rhymes were
Mary had a little lamb/ Patty Cake
We listened to Peek-a-boo from Baby Face using our colorful scarves to have some fun
Our second book I Love You Little Pumpkin! By Sandra Magsamen
Our rhyme/fingerplay was Touch Your Nose
We listened to Yes Sir, That’s My Baby from Baby Face it is a great action song for babies with lots of clapping and movement. Our last book was 

 Five Little Pumpkins by Ben Mantle

We ended with a round of bubbles and free play time before singing our goodbye song
 We Wave Goodbye Like This
We wave goodbye like this,
We wave goodbye like this,
to all our friends.
We clap our hands like this,
We clap our hands like this,
with all our friends.
Story time has ended.
