- Mark Bainbridge
I walked in to a spooky house – A scary house
A spooky house!
And I heard ghosts (ghostly sounds)
And I saw monsters (monster sounds)
I heard little devils (devilish sounds)
And I heard witches (witches laughter)
And then – with a bang
A big wind came
And knocked me down
And I, … got scared, … pretty scared, … very scared
Cause I heard great big giant steps
Great big giant steps!
Making an Earth Tremor start.
And the house to shake
Then a whirlwind came
Through the house it came
Spinning my head around
Making me fall to the ground!
And when I looked up…
I saw a door that was black!
I opened the latch!
The door opened slowly with a creak !!
AND OUT JUMPED THE BOOGY MONSTER’S FEET!!!!
And so I ran, from that house
With those scary monsters chasing me!
Halloween; Witches/goblins, Fantasy, etc.
This was written as an action song for a Halloween theme, however; the sound effects became the main ingredient and the children had a great time providing their own responses. Good Voice exercise and plenty of scope for the imagination. The Name – in honor of the master of the Suspense Thrillers, ‘Sir Alfred Hitchcock’.
There are a number of activities covering a range of areas on this theme including Drama, language development, and Art and Craft housed in the MEMBERS CONTENT area of this web page.
As an example: Drama:
