Halloween/ Día De Las Brujas

This storytime is designed as a Baby/Toddler storytime, but can be adjusted for older children as well.

Welcome Song:

José Luis Orozco — Buenos Dias

Song: (Pass out Shakers) Shake Your Sillies Out ( I usually use the version by Raffi)


Book 1: Los Gatos Black on Halloween by Yuyi Morales

Fingerplay: Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

 Fingerplay: Arana Pequeñita

La arana pequeñita subió, subió, subió.
Vino la lluvia y se la llevó.
Salió el sol y todo lo secó.
Y la araña pequeñita subió, subió, subió.


Rhyme: 5 Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on the 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 and run and run.”

The fifth one said, “let’s have some fun.”

Ooooo! Went the wind, and out went the light.

And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!


Book 2: Boo! = Bu! by  Leslie Patricelli

Fingerplay: Mi Carita Redondita (Tune of Darling Clementine)

Mi carita redondita,  (My round face)

tiene ojos y nariz,  (has eyes and a nose)

y tambien una boquita   (and also a mouth)

para cantar y reir.  (to sing and laugh)

Con mis ojos veo todo  (With my eyes I see everything)

con mi nariz hago atchis!   (with my nose I go achoo)
