ScarecrowThe old scarecrow is such a funny man.
He flops in the wind as hard as he can.
He flops to the right,
He flops to the left.
He flops back and forth
                        Till he’s almost out of breath.
                        His arms swing out; his legs
                        swing, too.
                        He nods his head in a How-do
                        See him flippity flop when the

                  Furly, curly, what a tail:
                  tall as a feather, broad as a snail.

                 Where’s his supper?
                 It’s  in the shell.
                 Snippity, crickity, out it fell.

5 Little Apples Hanging In A Tree (sung to tune of “Five Little Monkeys”)5 Little Apples hanging from a tree,

The rest are in a pie, as warm as can be,
Topped with yummy ice cream and served 
with tea!

Five fat Turkeys are we,
we slept all night in a tree

around we couldn’t be found,

What Am I?I See something Big and Round,
I see something on the ground.
It’s Orange and Smoothe,  
It harvests in the Fall.
                                Their sometimes big, 
                                medium, and yes small.
                                Can you guess what I 
                                can see?

                                it to me!

                   Thanksgiving comes again!

One tripped and fell, and now there’s only four.
Four little skeletons happy as can be,
One fell apart, and now there’s only three.

It’s Halloween, and he’s coming for you! Boo!
