Halloween poetry and songs for kids


Cantant en Halloween (il. Aaron Jasinski)
Halloween té les seues pròpies cançons infantils i poemetes. Cantem? En Halloween Song podeu trobar les cançonetes i poemes que hem seleccionats i molts altres més. Al blog també hem anat pujant-ne: Halloween Poetry and Songs for Kids.

Podeu acompanyar aquests poemetes i cançons amb unes simpàtiques i terribles il·lustracions sobre tots els temes de Halloween -calaveres, carabasses, bruixes, vampirs, esquelets, xiquets disfressats, mòmies, etc)

Halloween Surprise
(es canta seguint la música de Sing a Song of Sixpence)

First you take a pumpkin

Big and fat and round
Then you cut the top off
That will make a hat
Then you hollow out the
Nose and mouth and eyes
Now you have a Jack-O-Lantern
Halloween Surprise!

Safe Treats

(es canta amb la música de Frere Jacques)


Never eat your treats
Never eat your treats
Till their checked
Till their checked
Show them to Mommy
Show them to Daddy
Make sure they're safe
Make sure they're safe

Three Little Ghosts


Three little ghosts on Halloween night; saw a witch and freaked in freight.
The witch just laughed and shouted BOO.
One ghost ran home and then there were two.
Two little ghost who shiver and shook, with every single step they took;
When the door opened wide "A scary goblin stood inside"
One ghost said to the other "I'm going home and stay with my mother."
One little ghost can't have much fun, so he ran home , then there were none.

A Pumpkin is a Pumpkin

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a white ghost. Whooooooooo!

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a scary monster. Roarrrrr!

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a black cat. Meow!!!!!

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a cackling witch. Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee. *
 
Tune
In the sky on Halloween,
Many funny things are seen.
Bats and ghosts and goblins too,
Hope they don't come after you.

"Halloween is Coming" 
Halloween is coming,
Halloween is coming
Skeletons will be watching you (make circles w/ thumb and index finger as in watching)
Big black bats and witches hats OOOOOOO,
Halloween is coming Halloween is coming
Skeletons will be watching you
BOO!!

"There was an old witch"

There was an old witch
Believe it if you can
She tapped on the windows and she ran, ran, ran.
She ran helter-skelter
With her toes in the air
Cornstalks flying
From the old witches hair.

"Swish" goes the broomstick
"Meow" goes the cat
"Plop" goes the hoptoad
Sitting on her hat
"Whee!" chuckled I,
"What fun, what fun"
Halloween night
When the witches run.

Una coral per a Halloween (il. David Roberts)

If You're A Ghost and You Know It
(es canta amb la música de If You're Happy and you know it)

If you're a ghost and you know it,
Just say Boo
If you're a ghost and you know it,
Just Say BOO
If you're a ghost and you know it and you really want to show it...
If you're a ghost and you know it just say BOO

If you're a black cat and you know it
Just say Meow
If you're a black cat and you know it
Just say Meow
If you're a black cat and you know it
And you really want to show it,
If you're a black cat and you know it Just say Meow

If you're a skeleton and you know it,
Wiggle your bones (shake your body)
If you're a skeleton and you know it,
Wiggle your bones
If you're a skeleton and you know it,
And you really want to show it
If you're a skeleton and you know it,
Wiggle your bones.

If you love Halloween and you know it
Do all three (all 3 actions in order of appearance)
If you love Halloween and you know it
Do all three
If you love Halloween and you know it
And you really want to show it,
If you love Halloween and you know it
Do all three
