This Little Light of Mine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. (repeat 3x)
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
Hide it inside a pumpkin? No!
I'm gonna let it shine.
(repeat 3x)
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
Hide it under a haystack? No!
I'm gonna let it shine.
(repeat 3x)
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
Hide it behind a scarecrow? No!
I'm gonna let it shine.
(repeat 3x)
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

5 Little Ghosts (5 Little Ducks tune)
Five little ghosts went out one night
Going to give everyone a fright
"Boo!" said the ghosts to all they neared
Then one of the little ghosts disappeared
(repeat, counting down, until none of the little ghosts remain) 
Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, "Oh, my it's getting late"
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "But we don't care."
The fourth one said, "Let's run, let's run!"
The fifth one said, "Isn't Halloween fun?"
Then "Whoosh" went the wind
And OUT went the lights.
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
H Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
