I’m a Little Pumpkin (I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little pumpkin
Round and stout
Packed full of seeds that you can scoup out
When I get all carved up
Then I’ll be
The cutest Jack-o-Lantern you ever did see.
You put your head in, you put your head out
You put your head in and you shake it all about
You do the hooky spooky and you give a little shout
That’s what it’s all about- BOO!
I am a big user of the flannel board. I hope to see a big come back in stories and poems for it. This is a simple activity the children love. Cut a large pumpkin out of orange flannel. One side is blank, the other side has a Jack-O-Lantern face.
Here is a pumpkin, big and fat
He turns into a jack o lantern (snap your fingers, turn pumpkin over)
Just like that!
Its easy and the children like to do it for themselves.
Here’s a witch with a tall, tall hat.(hands pointed over hat)
Two big eyes on a black, black, cat. (Hands around eyes)
Jack O Lanterns in a row (make circles in front of you)
Funny Clowns are laughing. Ho,HO,Ho.(hold stomach)
Bunny’s ears flopping up and down
Fairy Queen wears a fairy crown
Gypsy plays a tambourine(clap hands together)
Cowboy twirls a rope
