Big Kids Storytime: Ghosts & Spooky Things

Bread and Butter

Let’s say hello as [loud, quiet, fast, slow, etc.] as we can- hello!

Five Spooky Ghosts
Five grey and spooky ghosts, doing what they love most
Scaring some very silly kids- Boo! Boo!
One flew into the sky, where it was nice and dry
Now there are four grey spooky ghosts
[repeat until no ghosts are left]

Three Ghost Friends: Learn About Shapes by Eric VanRaepenbusch
*The father of one of my storytime kids has written several fun books, including a series about three ghost friends. He generously offered to share one at storytime and all the kids loved it. He even shared one of his newest stories, which you can read about here.


If You're a Ghost and You Know It
If you're a ghost and you know just say boo (boo!)
If you're a ghost and you know just say boo (boo!)
If you're a ghost and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're a ghost and you know just say boo (boo!)
[we repeated with some suggestions from the group, including wolves/howling, bats/flapping wings, etc.]

In the Dark, Dark Woods
*This is a flip-book I made myself based on this YouTube video by Karen Bowling. I especially liked how her version had several scary/silly alternate endings.

Storytime Challenge
Today we filled in a "haunted house" ten frame with ghosts and witches. I was pretty sure it was the first time most of my kids saw a ten frame so it definitely helped referring to it as a haunted house instead. They all got the hang of it quickly and had fun make ten frames for each other!

Goodbye Song

The library doors go open and shut, open and shut, open and shut
The library doors go open and shut at the library
We check our books in and out, in and out, in and out
We check our books in and out at the library
Our time is up but we’ll see you next week, see you next week, see you next week

Our time is up but we’ll see you next week at the library
