Halloween (H-A-double L-O)

Posted by lbbartolomeo on October 19, 2012

This is an oldie goldie with fun singing and movement possibilities.  Here’s the video.

Form:
Introduction A Interlude B Interlude A Interlude C Interlude A Coda

INSTRUMENTAL SECTIONS

The introduction, interludes, and coda are all the same instrumental music. It’s on these instrumental parts where I like to have movement.  Students get in groups and come up with 8 slow movements. (It is 8 measures of a fast 3/4)

A SECTION

Great fun with students spelling out the letters to the word Halloween with their fingers.

H is thumb tips touching and pointer fingers pointing up like you’re making a football goal post.

For A, keep the H and put your pointer fingers together to form the top point of the  A.

Double L is simply both hands making an L shape. (yes one will look backwards, but hey!!!)

O is just circle your hands into an O shape.

W is like the H but your thumbs lift up to form the inner part of the W.

E is three fingers turned sideways, using both hands. (again one is backwards)

I gave up on N and just drew it in the air!!!

B and C SECTION

The two verses here can be swaying or walking like a zombie or an endless number of simple moves.  I like to keep it simple because it goes into the instrumental portions with their created movement and I want them to be ready.
