Action Rhymes

Five Little Ghosts
Five little ghosts dressed all in white
Were scaring each other on Halloween night.
“Boo!” said the first one, “I’ll catch you.’” (Hold up pointer)
“Wooo said the second, “I don’t care if you do! (Hold up middle finger)
The third ghost said, “You can’t run away from me.” (Hold up ring finger)
And the fourth one said, “I’ll scare everyone I see! (Hold up little finger)
Then the last one said, “It’s time to disappear.” (Hold up thumb)
“See you at Halloween time next year!”

The Ghost
I saw a ghost (fingers circle eyes)
He saw me too (point to yourself)
I waved at him (wave your hand)
But he said “BOO!” (try to scare person next to you)

This Old Ghost

This Old Ghost, he played One (raise 1 finger)
He played “peek-a-boo” on the run
With a Boo-boo-boo, and a clap, clap, clap
This Old Ghost is a friendly chap!

This Old Ghost, he played Two (raise 2 fingers)
He played “peek-a-boo” on my shoe
With a Boo-boo-boo, and a clap, clap, clap
This Old Ghost is a friendly chap!

This Old Ghost, he played Three (raise 3 fingers)
He played “peek-a-boo” on the run
With a Boo-boo-boo, and a clap, clap, clap
This Old Ghost is a friendly chap!
