TWO LITTLE APPLES
(Spoken as a chant)
Way up high in an apple tree
Two little apples smiled at me
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples,
MMMMMMMMM, they were good!

LEAVES

All the leaves are falling down,
Falling Down, Falling Down,
All the leaves are falling down,
Red, yellow, orange and brown!

FIVE LITTLE PUMPKINS!
(Spoken as a chant)
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The 1st one said "Oh My, it's getting late!"
The 2nd one said "There's dark clouds in the air."
The 3rd one said "We don't care!"
The 4th one said "Let's run, run, run!"
The 5th one said "It's Halloween fun!"
Then WHOOOOO went the wind, and
Out went the lights, and
Five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

GRIZZLY BEAR
(Spoken as a chant, and acted out by children)
Grizzly bear, oh grizzly bear, is sleeping in his cave
Please be very quiet, very, very quiet
If you shake him, if you wake him
He'll get very mad!!!

Actions:
Children act as if they are sleeping on the floor
Someone disturbs the sleeping bears by tapping their backs
"Bears" wake up and growl fiercely and loudly...very fun!
