Storytime – Welcome Song
Storytime is starting, starting, starting,
Storytime is starting come listen with me.
Sing: Five Little Ghosts
Five little ghosts flying through the door, One flew away and then there were four.
Four little ghosts spooky as can be, One flew away and then there were three.
Three little ghosts drinking Halloween brew, One flew away and then there were two.
Two little ghosts having lots of fun, One went home and then there was one.
One little ghost's a real superhero, Went to help a friend and then there were zero!
One little, two little, three little witches, (hold up fingers)
Fly over haystacks, fly over ditches, (make hands fly high in the air)
Slide down moon beams without any hitches, (hands glide downward)
Hi-ho! Halloween's here! (clap hands two times on "Hi-ho!)
Horned owl's hooting, it's time to go riding, (hold hands for ears)
Hi-ho! Halloween's here! (Clap hands two times on hi-ho”
Directions: - Trace the child's hands on black paper with chalk, extending the drawings of the fingers to look long and pointy. Let them cut the hands out and decorating them with markers, stickers, paints, etc. Can make bones on hands with the chalk.
