5 Little Ghosts
I thought it was time to add another rhyme to the collection we began in the post, Teacher Mama: Fall Finger Plays (Apples and Pumpkins). And since we are still in Halloween season, Five Little Ghosts, seemed appropriate. There are many different versions of the rhyme and I have included a few here. Choose which one you like or do them all!
- white paper
- black pen
- googly eyes
To Make the 5 Little Ghosts
- Draw a ghost shape and cut it out. This creates a stencil.
- Trace the shape 5 times on white paper and cut them out.
- Mount the 5 Little Ghosts on cardboard. I used an empty cereal box.
- Add two eyes and a mouth.
5 Little Ghosts (version 1)
5 little ghosts, what a spooky sight,
One was so tired he slept through the night.
4 little ghosts flying so high,
One was so scared he started to cry.
3 little ghosts as happy as can be,
One flew so high he bumped into a tree.
2 little ghosts dancing in the air,
One did the Hokey-Pokey; he didn’t care.
The last little ghost all alone in the night,
He said, “Boo!” and gave himself a fright!
5 Little Ghosts (version 2)
5 little ghosts all dressed in white
Scaring each other on Halloween night.
“Boo!” said the first one, “I’ll catch you!”
“Woooo!” said the second, “I don’t care if you do!”
The third ghost said, “You can’t run away from me.”
The fourth one said, “I’ll scare everyone I see!”
Then the last one said, “It’s time to disappear.”
“See you at Halloween time next year!”
