Book: Ghost Gets Dressed by Janee Trasler (2007)
The punchline of this book - that the monster wears all of the ghost's clothing, and eventually the ghost as well - went over like a lead balloon. But this book is still so cute, and had just the right amount of words for this age group.

Rhyme: One Little Ghost
This is a great Halloween rhyme, which I discovered just this week. I plan to use it at all my Halloween-themed story times.

Song: The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Book: Five Little Pumpkins by Iris Van Rynbach (1995)
This is one of many interpretations of this well-known pumpkin rhyme. It's not particularly remarkable, but it's a nice big book for a big audience! 

Song: Shake My Sillies Out

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: Hands Are For Clapping 

Flannel Board Song: Five Little Pumpkins
Again, I started singing and there was immediate silence. This song is magic. 

Song: One Little Monster

Song: Tommy Thumb
This was the first week that this song felt like a forced march. It might be time to trade it in for something new.

Song: The Wheels on the Bus
I retired this song months ago and thought I'd try doing it again today. Too soon. I still hate it!

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
