Halloween Strong Start

Halloween Strong Start

I have yet to do a Strong Start, so this will be my first attempt, Halloween style. I have been told to use “lots of songs, puppets, and felts” and aim for around 15 minutes. Here’s the plan:

Welcome Song:
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap, a clap, clap, clap, a clap, clap, clap.
I wake up my hands with a clap, clap, clap, and I wiggle my waggles away.
… nose with a beep, beep, beep
… head with a tap, tap, tap
… tummy with a rub, rub, rub

Book: Plumply, Dumply Pumpkin

Action rhyme: “Little Owls, Little Owls” with owl puppet
 Little owls, little owls, jump up and down.
Little owls, little owls, turn around.
Little owls, little owls, tip-toe to me.
Little owls, little owls, look around and see
Little owls, little owls, flap, flap, flap.
Little owls, little owls, take a nap.
Little owls, little owls, fly to the leaves!
Little owls, little owls, sit down, please.

Book: Jungle Halloween

Song: “If You’re a Monster and You Know It”
If you’re a monster and you know it stomp your paws.
If you’re a monster and you know it stomp your paws.
If you’re a monster and you know it and you really want to show it, if you’re a monster and you know it stomp your paws.
… twitch your tail
… give a roar
… smack your claws

Bat Flannel
Red bat, red bat what do you see?

Bat Song
Bats are sleeping, bats are sleeping.
Upside down, upside down.
Waiting for the night to come, waiting for the night to come.
They fly around, they fly around.

Closing Song:
We wave goodbye like this, we wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends, we wave goodbye like this.

Happy Halloween! Anyone dressing up today? Any interesting library-related costumes?

I didn’t dress up since, sadly, no one at the library was going to be in costume today. I think it should be mandatory that everyone in the library dress up as a popular literary character. How fun would that be? (Some ideas here.)

A librarian I worked with today did say he considered dressing up as a librarian, wearing a cardigan and putting a bun in his hair (literally putting a bun in his hair, as in a dinner roll. LOL! I always appreciate a good pun.)

Have a fun and safe night trick or treating!
