This is a short fun poem for the students to learn about 5 pumpkins. There are three different levels of support from a reader, rebus, and interactive reader. I have a coloring page that I use as a follow-up and a project they can bring home to share with their family as they say the poem. I also have Halloween conversation cards that both give some common things said at Halloween as well as some of the rules of Halloween.
These are activities that I do with this song:
Say the Poem
: There are four different booklets, reader, rebus reader, rebus reader plus adapted pictures and a lyric page.
: Although you can do this activity at school I like to have it as homework which then becomes a nice family connection to what we are doing at school.
: There are a set of conversation cards around the topic of Halloween.
: There are two different types of paper for the child to write and draw about what they are going to be for Halloween.

I find that I have a variety of students that I work with and having the same story in several different editions help to support all my students. I store them in a folder then give each child the edition that is appropriate for them.
I use this story for a variety of students from students
*Preschool, kindergarten, and first graders as part of a poem choice
*Fluency cases to practice smooth speech
*Students who need visual supports including students on the autism spectrum, students with attention deficit, students with cognitive difficulties, and students with speech or language difficulties.
