Knock knock, trick or treat?

Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween. [Halloween gesture.]
Knock knock, trick or treat?
Happy Halloween. Happy Halloween. ♫

Classroom Benefits

"Knock Knock, Trick Or Treat?" is a classroom favorite, so we created a sequel introducing more Halloween costumes. You may want to use "Knock Knock, Trick Or Treat?" with your class one year, and then the next year, use Part 2 to give them some variety. Just as with the first version, Part 2 is a music and movement song with lots of opportunity to move about the room and play creatively.

Cards In A Row
Put 10 Halloween character flashcards (superhero, angel, mummy, ghost, monster, etc.) in a row face up. Name all of the cards together with the child. Next, turn the first card in the row face down, and ask him to name all the cards again (including the face down card). If he can do it, turn the first two cards in the row face down and try again. If he can still name all the cards, turn three cards over. Continue until he is able to name all of the cards, in order, while they are face down. 2

The Mummy!
Don't get caught by the mummy!
Prepare some Halloween character vocabulary flashcards from Super Simple Songs - Halloween. There should be at least two of each character for every student in the class. Have all of the students sit in a large circle. Choose one student to stand in the middle of the circle and be "The Mummy." Pass out one flashcard to each seated student.

The mummy closes his eyes. Play the "Knock Knock, Trick or Treat? (Part 2)" song. The students sing along and pass their cards around the circle. When the music stops, the students stop passing their cards. The mummy opens his eyes and tries to guess who is holding the vampire card (or any card you choose). He chooses any student and asks, "Are you a vampire?" If that student does not have a vampire card, she can say, "No, I'm a superhero/angel/etc." The mummy continues asking students until he finds the vampire. If the student does have a vampire card, she says, "Yes!" All of the students holding a vampire card must stand up and try to sit where one of the other vampires was seated. The mummy also attempts to sit down in one of the open seats, but he can't bend his legs when he walks. The student who is left without a seat becomes the mummy. Start again! 3
