It's been four full years since I owned/taught preschool, but there are just times every year that I think back and figure out what we would be doing.
Today is Halloween. I won't lie. It's not my favorite holiday; in fact, it's probably my LEAST favorite holiday. But children's excitement is contagious, children in costumes are adorable, and I know at least two Halloween rhymes (for your reading pleasure):
Halloween cat! Halloween cat,
Why do you meow and meow like that?
Neither I nor the moon likes your tune,
So, scat! Scat, Halloween cat!
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: We don't care!
The fourth one said: Let's run! Let's run!
The fifth one said: Isn't Halloween fun?
Oooo, went the wind and OUT went the light.
Those five little pumpkins rolled fast out of sight!
You're welcome. And Happy Halloween!
