“It’s a Halloween Party” song for music therapy / education students by Margie La Bella of Music therapy Tunes.

Goal Area: Expressive language, attention span,
Objective: Kids will sing the various sounds associated with the  Halloween characters.
Materials: song, kids, pictures of the characters.
Method: Sing and encourage the children to do likewise.
Adaptations: 1. Sing each verse as its own entity. 2. For a trickier version, after the last phrase of each verse, string the preceding verses. Other examples of this backwards chaining activity are “The twelve days of Christmas” and “Father Abraham.”  3. Also, assign (or let the children pick) instruments to represent the characters. Use a microphone to inspire participation. 4. Older kids can make the sounds in a microphone as the lyrics indicate. This requires quick responding and attention span. Try it! 5. Make your own Halloween verses with related sound effects.
