The Words to the Rhyme:
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The first one said, “My, it’s getting late.”
The second one said, “There’s wind in the air.”
The third one said, “But we don’t care.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run, let’s run!”
The fifth one said, “It’s Halloween fun!”
“WOO-OO-OO-OO!” went the wind
And out went the lights.
These five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
The Words to another Rhyme:
Five little pumpkins sitting on the fence
Smiling ear to ear and acting like gents
Along came a hungry witch quickly flying by
She took one home and made a pumpkin pie
(Substitute 4, 3, 2, and 1 in place of 5 in each verse)
Sample Activity Suggestion: Bring a Pumpkin to class and let the children see how it rolls. Talk about the reason for the “bump-bump-bump” sound it makes when it rolls. What makes that sound? Cut off the top and let the children explore the inside. Bake the seeds and let the children try them.
