One For You, One For Me Lyrics and Actions

Key Gestures
Share - Hold your hands together with both palms up and move them forward as if offering something. Then move your hands back to your chest.
Halloween - Cover your face with both hands and then open them, as if playing peek-a-boo.
Here you are - Extend one hand forward as if offering something.
Thank you - Do the ASL sign, with the fingertips of one hand touching the chin and then moving out and down.

♫ One for you. [Hold up one finger. Pretend to pick up one candy and give it to someone.]
One for me. [Hold up one finger. Pretend to pick up one candy and put it in the palm of your hand.]
Let's share all of our candy. [Share gesture.]
Happy Happy Halloween. [Happy face. Halloween gesture.]
One for you.
One for me.

Two for you. [Hold up two fingers. Pretend to pick up two candies and give them to someone.]
Two for me. [Hold up two fingers. Pretend to pick up two candies and put it in the palm of your hand.]
Let's share all of our candy.
Happy Happy Halloween.
Two for you.
Two for me.

Here you are. [Here you are gesture.]
Thank you very much. [Thank you gesture.]
Here you are.
Thank you very much.

Three for you.
Three for me.
Let's share all of our candy.
Happy Happy Halloween.
Three for you.
Three for me.

Four for you.
Four for me.
Let's share all of our candy.
Happy Happy Halloween.
Four for you.
Four for me.

Here you are.
Thank you very much.
Here you are.
Thank you very much.

Five for you.
Five for me.
Let's share all of our candy.
Happy Happy Halloween.
Five for you.
Five for me.

None for you. [Make a zero with one hand.]
None for me. [Make a zero with the other hand.]
We ate all of our candy. [Pat your tummy as if you are full.]
Happy Happy Halloween.
Sharing all of our candy. [Share gesture.]

Classroom Benefits

Halloween is a great time of the year to focus on sharing. Children are naturally excited about receiving candy, so it's a great opportunity to reinforce the idea and language of sharing. This song is nice and repetitive, making it easy to teach in a short period of time.

Activity Ideas

Sing-Along
Try this one any time of year and use other items instead of candy. For example, share marbles and sing, "One for you. One for me. A-B-C-D-E-F-G. Sharing, sharing happily. One for you. One for me." 1

Candy Relay
Bring a large bag of candy to class. Divide your class into seated lines of about 10 students. Place 10 candies in a dish in front of each line. On the count of three, the student at the front of the line takes one candy and passes it to the student behind him and says, "One for you." That student says, "One for me," and passes it on to the next student, saying, "One for you." They continue until the last student in the line receives the candy. That student must race to the front of the line, put the candy back in the bowl, and sit down at the front of the line. The first team to do so receives a point. In the next round, they take two candies. Continue the game, adding one candy each round. Be careful not to drop any along the way! 2
