Oh yes, it is now October! This means I can finally indulge in my obsession, not only with fall but also with Halloween! I love Halloween–the costumes, the ambiance, pumpkins, apple spice, all that jazz.
In honor of Halloween, I put up a new display. Five little pumpkins is a staple in the storytime world. The rhyme is good to read, for finger play, felt boards and more. Keeping that in mind I made up my own little rhyme for the display:
“Five little pumpkins, sitting on a gate. They like reading, they think it’s great!”
I created my five little pumpkins and “carved” the word READ. Then to give the display a bit more flare, I added ghosts chanting “Boooooooks!” and little bats.
I think it came out pretty good. What do you think?
That’s all for now!
