Product Description
One of the seasonal poems I do for October, is “5 Little Pumpkins Sitting On a Gate”.

It’s chock full of Dolch words, rhymes, has ordinal numbers and is a fun way to practice counting with little ones.

My students absolutely love making and wearing a crown, which is a quick, easy and fun craftivity, so I thought it would be fun to design 5 crown options for my own little pumpkins.

The patterns come in color as well as black and white.

Simply choose your favorite or give children a choice, then run the template off on white card stock or construction paper.

Children color, then trim around the crown, then glue the bottom to the center of a sentence strip, or length of card stock that you have cut to size.

Bulletin board border also works really well, and adds extra pizzazz because you can choose either plain or a fall or Halloween-themed pattern.

Afterwards I have my kiddos line up and we have a pumpkin parade, marching around the room to some spooky music.

I also have kiddos sit on the floor in a circle. I point to a child who jumps up and says, “One”. The next child I point to jumps up and says, “Two!” continue ’til you’ve counted to 5.

Then clap a pattern for them to copy (1-2 ** 3-4-5).
Continue to point to children ’til everyone is standing.
Once everyone is standing, we all count backwards “5-4-3-2-1 Done!” then everyone plops on the floor.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy this poem and making a crown as much as mine do.
