Do you read “5 Little Pumpkins Sitting On a Gate” with your students?
I love reading this seasonal poem with my kiddos, as it’s chock full of Dolch words, rhymes, has ordinal numbers and is a fun way to practice counting too.
With that in mind, I made up this “flip the flap” craftivity, as a super-fun way to read and share the poem.
Besides the black and white templates for students, I’ve also included colorful patterns so that you can quickly and easily make a sample to share.
Even if you don’t do this as a whole group activity you can whip one together for yourself to use as a storytelling manipulative, which will be a great visual for your students.
I’ve also included an “Itty Bitty” emergent reader booklet for children to color, cut and collate.
Have them pick a partner and take turns reading to each other, then encourage them to remember to read it to their families.
Both the craft and emergent reader come with 2 versions of the poem.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled October.
