Five Little Pumpkins

Sooo I realized that I’ve never made a flannel for five little pumpkins and of course I had to. So ta-da!

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
First one said “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
Second one said “There are witches in the air”
The third one said ” but we don’t care!”
The fourth one said “let’s run and run and run”
The fifth one said “I’m ready for some fun!”
Ooo ooo went the wind, and out went the light
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight

That’s all for now!

Five Little Pumpkins

Hi Guys,

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.

51eirsodhpl-_sx497_bo1204203200_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!
