“Swish, Swish and Clomp, Clomp”

Halloween House:
The students each get a turn deciding what they want in our Halloween House. Sometimes it's spiders, pumpkins, and ghosts, other times it has been Tinkerbell's and Ironman. After the student selects who/what is in the house, they decide what they do. For example, one student said, "pumpkins" and "they go 'ha, ha, ha'". So we sang the following song to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus:
The Pumpkin in our house goes "ha, ha, ha", "ha, ha, ha", "ha, ha, ha", 
The Pumpkin in our house goes "ha, ha, ha",
On Halloween

Spooky Walk:

The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything:
We read the story, The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. While we read it, the students get to act out the parts using different parts of their body (example: "Clomp, Clomp", stomp feet, "Nod, Nod", nodding heads). After the story we talk about if we would be scared and what we would do and how the book had a happy ending and what that was.

Although we will be reading the book ourselves, you can find different readings of it on youtube with pictures from the book. Here is one version:
