Halloween Storytime Programs

At the Atascocita Branch Library, we have several special storytimes planned for the week of Halloween.  To help spread holiday cheer children are encouraged to wear costumes. 

Neither registration nor tickets are required to attend any of the storytime programs.  However, space and supplies are limited. Please choose one of the program options so others will have a chance to do the same. 
We frequently take photographs during Programs, events and classes for promotional purposes of the library. Many of these items posted on the hcplebranch flickr account so you may share the experience with loved one. Please notify library staff if you prefer not to be photographed.

Halloween Fingerplays and Songs

Music is a very important part of the storytime experience.  Below are a few that I thought you might enjoy.
 
Roll Them

Roll them, roll them, roll them, roll them give them a little clap.

Roll them, roll them,  roll them, roll them lay them in your lap.

Creep them, creep them, creep them, creep them right up to your chin.

Open your mouth but...do not let them in!

Roll them, roll them, roll them, roll them give a little clap.

Roll them, roll them, roll them, roll them  place them in your lap.

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.

The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late."

The second one said, "There's witches in the air."

The third one said, "But I don't care."

The fourth one said, "Let's run, and run and run!"

The fitfth one said, "It's Halloween fun."

Ooooo went the wind, and  OUTwent the lights

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

 

Halloween Sounds

This is the way the witches fly, witches fly, witches fly,

This is the witches fly...Swish! Swish! Swish!

 

This is the way the ghosts go by, ghosts go by, ghosts go by,

This is the way the ghosts go by...Oooo! Oooo! Oooo!

 

This is the way the black cats howl, black cats howl, black cats howl,

This is the way the black cats howl...Meow! Meow! Meow!

 

This is the way the pumpkins laugh, pumpkins laugh, pumpkins laugh,

This is the way the pumpkins laugh...Hee! Hee! Hee!

 

This is the way the night owls cry, night owls cry, night owls cry,

This is the way the night owls cry...Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!

 

Three Little Witches

Sung to: Ten Little Indians

One little, two little, three little witches

Flying over haystacks,

Soaring over ditches.

One little, two little, three little witches,

Happy Halloween fun!
