Teacher

  1. Print out the free "Trick-or-Treat Mice" coloring page. (1 per student)
  2. Make a copy of the song on the coloring page for the students to see (overhead transparency, easel or white board).
  3. Practice the song with movements. You are about to wear out your kids! After they get the hang of it, you can rest and watch while they sing and act out the song.

Students

1.  Sing the song with your teacher.

Hand symbols/dance to go with the song:
